The Giant Spider Crab is found in underwater in the ocean. Its shadow is very large and it moves in a straight line.
The Giant Spider Crab can be donated to the museum. Upon doing so, the following text is given by Blathers:
"Known for their long legs, adult male spider crabs can have leg spans of over three yards. This actually makes them the largest species of crab in the world. They are thought to have lived in ocean bottoms for tens of millions of years without changing shape. Their vivid-orange bodies feature white spots, making their coloration truly beautiful."
Upon catching the fish, the player will say the following:
"I got a spider crab! Who'd put spiders in the ocean?"
