I saw a blue crab at the beach once in CT at low tide. It was pretty big. It was so pretty and it jumped out of the water snapping at me with its claws! I wouldn't eat it because it was too pretty and cute. Though I don't think it would have made a good pet either because it was so aggressive!

In Vietnam we would take a bucket put something isn't inside to attract the crasbs and them dig a hole and once they got into the bucket they never got out :)

if it's claw is anything like a lobster you could loose a finger. There is a reason lobsters have bands on their claws. They would also mangle their tank mates while waiting to become supper.

@ silver fang...these blue crabs can reach a whoping jumbo size and have massive tell you the power they have i once held both ends of the large claw of one of these blues and i used both hands to hold each my surprise the crab closed its claw and my hands were brought back together...although i tried hard to open it was too much force to be pry open.

OK as promised here are the pics of teh cleaned crabs ...

Note: as seen here they are not as yet ready for the pot..further cleaning must take place to remove extra dirt and any bacteria.

And now the extremely tasty mouth watering curried crab, dumplings and potatoes :)..very very tasty i guarantee you :)..spic for crab lovers its a must!

I would grill them and then dip them in a noisette butter with a little bit of lemon

The only problem when shellfish is covered in a sauce is you have to scrub their shells down REALLY well before you cook them.
