William, from Denver, Colorado, US, said: “I thought this was amazing to see so up close!

“And it never gets old, seeing just how ugly and scary they look, almost as if they are an actual alien crab.

“And even though it’s hard to tell on the video, these hermit crabs are giant and can grow as large as a chicken.”
