    No not that Boris, this one:

    We found him on a beach looking a bit sorry for himself, and debated whether to cook or rescue. He got rescued in the end.

    Here's another shot of me holding him for scale:

    Aww, lucky old Boris, it does look a size able chap/chapess... :)

    Define 'rescue, though, assume you mean putting it back in the sea and not taking home in a cardboard box full of cotton wool?... :rog:

    That's a great crab and an even better name!

    We gave him a no-expense-spared cardboard box with a nice soft blanket in it, and a saucer of bread and milk. He didn't seem to like it though, so we chucked the ungrateful sod in the sea in the end.
