A very cross-tacean! Local in Vietnam finds out what happens when you put four crabs in a sink and try to poke them

  • Vietnamese person gets pinched by crab after putting four of them in the sink
  • Video shows the person trying to poke the crustaceans before getting a nip
  • It was filmed yesterday in Buon Ma Thuot, 1,200km south from the capital Hanoi 

A Vietnamese person has found out the hard way what happens when you put four crabs in the kitchen sink and try to poke them.

Video shows them sticking out their fingers to jab the crabs in Buon Ma Thuot, about 1,200km south from the capital Hanoi, before getting a nasty nip.

Shocked, the person pulls their fingers out of the water in horror to find the crab is still clinging on.

Footage shows them lowering the crustacean to the floor before it lets go and tries to creep away.  

The crabs may be blue swimming crabs, an important export for Vietnam that comes from the same family as edible crabs.

In Western Australia they have grown up to 10inches wide across the shell, with a claw span of up to 30inches, or almost three classroom-sized rulers.

The video was filmed yesterday in the south-east Asian country.
