Giant crab tries to steal golf clubs during a round in Australia

A clip of a giant crab attaching itself to a set of golf clubs has recently been shared around on Reddit.

The video shows a group of Australian golfers on Christmas Island trying to detach a coconut crab off a set of golf clubs.

The crab isn’t willing to let go and eventually slices its way through a driver.

Catie McLeod at has reported that the video is in fact a few years old but has been gaining in popularity after recently sharing the clip to a friend.

Mr Buhner says in the clip the group had returned from putting out on their sixth hole to find the crab there.

“And that’s why we call them a robber crab … And we have not put this here, this has climbed up here while we’ve been putting out,” he says.

“He’s got a bloody good grip on it – look at that.”

Mr Buhner on Monday told NCA NewsWire that he had filmed the video in October 2020 and was surprised to find it doing the rounds on social media in January 2022 after his son sent the clip to a friend.
