Maxi mini eating emerald crab

Exactly what the title says. My maxi mini carpet is enjoying a LARGE feast on one of my big emerald crabs. I saw him all closed up over something today and thought it was a crab because I could kind of see it. Now that he's opened up I can clearly see the crab in his mouth. I doubt this will turn out good for the nem.... I can't see it being easily digested. But I didn't think maxi minis were THAT aggressive. We shall see what happens!!

There's the pic. It's bad because of all the sun glares on my glass.

I doubt it grabbed a healthy crab. Was either dead or a molt being much more likely. My carpet nem has had similar snacks on dead and molts where it had the ought otherwise when I first saw it.

Well now that he "puked" it up, I'm noticing some legs are off so I think it's a molt as well. Was still crazy because it was soooo big considering the size of the nem.
