    A hilarious video, which Twitter user Conner Payne shared on September 26, much to internet community’s amusement, has made waves in social media ever since. The short clip shows Conner about to sweep a giant spider that scared his arachnophobic mom out into the cold, when he braced himself and grabbed the bowl to see… his own pet crab!

    Thank god Conner's mom didn't get rid of poor Crabby before the misunderstanding was discovered! It remains a mystery how he managed to escape the tank; according to his owner, the poor creature even lost a leg on his journey but now he's doing great.
