A teeny pet crab named Crabby managed to escape his tank, and was out for a stroll through his owner’s home when the unthinkable occurred: he was mistaken by his caretaker’s mother for a large spider.
The resulting video’s racked up more than 4,000 retweets on Twitter, and probably way more laughs.

Crabby was almost swept out into the cold before his owner, Twitter user Conner Payne, discovered the misunderstanding.
Per Payne’s follow-up tweets, Crabby lost a leg on his journey, but is safe and sound in his tank.
Crabby is doing great everyone. He lost a leg but he is alive. https://t.co/bJFIyhUV8P
