50ft Crabzilla of Whitstable Harbour Becomes Internet Sensation
A recent aerial photo of Whitstable Harbour has the internet wondering whether the seaside town has become the home of a 50ft-wide crab.
While some are welcoming the idea of ‘Crabzilla’, many believe the photo shows little more than a coincidental sandbank formation or a hoax. The photo was uploaded to the internet by Quinton Winter, who regularly posts on the Weird Whitstablog, a website that documents a lot of dubious paranormal activity in the town, such as a haunted fence and a ghost in a local corner shop. Winter is also the only person that can confirm ‘Crabzilla’ is a living breathing monster of the deep.
It had glazed blank eyes on stalks, swivelling wildly and it clearly was a massive crab with crushing claws.
Before this incident I thought the aerial photo showed an odd-shaped sand bank. Now I know better.
Making the boats in the harbour look miniscule, if real, Crabzilla would measure about 4 times larger than the Japanese spider crab, the world’s largest known species of crab.
