Take a Stab at the Crab

This was my first capture (1st night too)

He is now happily in home in my crab/mantis tank.

And a rather large one. Notice, he almost covers the bottom of the jar.

And the prize goes to Mr. Obvious...I was just wondering what kind he was so I could place odds on him in my Mantis/Crab arena.
