About 50 giant crabs invade family's dinner

A family in Australia got the shock of their lives when they looked around and saw dozens of crabs in their presence.

The coconut crabs paid a visit during a family's camping trip in Australia’s Christmas Island, just in time for dinner. 

Crabs are known to be omnivores, so when Amy Luetich and her family were feasting on sausages, they were suddenly surrounded by 50 more mouths to feed.
