Spider Crab Shelling!

I’ve heard about crustaceans crawling out of their own shells but I’ve never seen a spider crab with long legs yank itself out with such ease. It sure makes my crab eating skills an embarrassment. How cool would it be if you could just pull out all the meat all at once skipping the hammer and crackers!
Watch the video above and starting around 0:55 it gets mighty fascinating!
