The reaction from Ensen when Uncle Kevin put him on the chair to see the Samoan crab was priceless. “WHOOOOOA,” he exclaimed as he witnessed for the first time the size and strangeness of this creature snatched from the ocean by Kailua Grandpa last week. Ensen then proceeded to examine the crab as best he could.
This had to be the biggest crab I’ve seen in real life. Not sure what it weighed, but the thing was a monster. Just look at the size of the right claw. It was as big as a beer can. It also smashed the hell out of the trap Kailua Grandpa used to catch it.
After Ensen shook its claw and posed for some photos, it was time to cook Mr. Samoan Crab. Unfortunately, it didn’t turn out so good as the meat was all mushy. Perhaps it was because they froze it so they could preserve it and show everyone. Regardless, it was still an amazing catch and just means Kailua Grandpa will have to catch one again. Next time, you can be sure they’ll eat it the same day.
