Although seemingly numerous... these crabs are currently in danger of extinction. (by the way of ants.)

Those crabs looked extremely appetizing up until I saw the female crab laying her eggs by spurting them out like that... Then I saw all those baby crabs. That`s fuc|<ing gross. Imagine having them in your clothes and your food and your shower. They`re everywhere.

The baby crabs were freaky. Freaky like a billion baby crabs (which is about as freaky as a billion baby crabs).
