Crab takes on alligator, wins battle with hilarious pinch


If you  ever needed proof that big things come in small packages, it’s this. A South Carolina man captured the moment a crab took on an alligator, and won. Phil Lanoue was snapping shots in Huntington Beach State Park in Georgetown County when he spotted the alligator sneaking behind the shellfish, going in for the kill. But the crab’s sense of survival kicks in and before the alligator can say, “lunch”, the crab swiftly spins around, clasps his pincers against the alligator’s snout, and scuffles away with a defiant win.
