    guys and girls i have seen it all now.. i have found a huge river crab living in my toilet.. i have a piece of muscle on a hook dangling in there as i type this message..

    it is soooo freaky.. how the hell do i catch it out..

    if i try google the problem i get a hundred references to crabs the std.. but nothing about a physical freaken crab living there...

    STD jokes aside.. im stressed.. :(

    hahahaha only in Gonubie, now thats a dangerous crapper, try hook his barbs with a stocking, thats how we catch them in the rivers, i would advise you not to think about making crab cakes though

    A few years back, when I lived in Witbank...heard a sound by the Headboard, pulled the bed away and saw a Crab, walking between the wall and base...:005::005::005:

    ok update, i put a mussel on a 2 O hook and tied it to a stick.. left in in there last night and woke up this morning to go check..

    it was hooked.. what a tug of war .. it was like fighting a marlin.. (ok not really, but you get the dramatisation).. frikken hook never took hold and dislodged ..

    so i proceeded to flush the toiled by throwing a 25lt drum of water down there in the hopes that the suction might pull him out and flush it down..

    then i decised to throw boiling hot water down there to try get him to go further into the pipework..

    i know he cant get out of the bowl.. but its freaky knowing something like that is in your house..

    oh and @belindamotion , my mother in law woke up to something heavy walking over her chest while she was sleeping.. it was a beeg crab aswell.. it had somehow climbed onto the bed...

    so hence my being stressed about the situation...
