A MONSTER crab has been filmed SNAPPING a golf club in half – leaving golfers stunned by its sheer strength.
The giant intruder found its way on top of a golf cart with his claws on three clubs.

‘Buster’ was determined to leave the altercation with a prize[/caption]
The bemused golfers eventually admitted defeat[/caption]
The golfers pleaded with ‘Buster’ to ‘be nice’, but the crab was adamant he was the new owner of the bag and its contents, in the footage shot on Christmas Island, in the Indian Ocean.
Local Paul Buhner, who filmed the video, explained: “And that’s why we call them a robber crab… we have not put this here, this has climbed up here while we’ve been putting out.
“He’s got a bloody good grip on it – look at that.”
The greedy crab wasn’t too keen to let go of the driver, and to stop the owner from prizing it from his claws, he snapped the shaft – cutting through it ‘like a chainsaw’.
Buhner’s friend pleaded: “That’s not fair, I like that club.”
The crab remained unfazed and continued to wrestle for more golf equipment.

Buhner said: “He’s going to take that, we’re not getting that back.”
The Aussie added: “Alright, we concede defeat.”
The viral video left Reddit users in shock with one former Coconut Island resident likening a swarm of robber crabs coming from the trees to a ‘horror scene’.
They replied: “They really like coming out after dusk and can be like a bit of a horror scene sometimes when you’re having a barbie and a swarm of them start coming in from the trees.”
Another quipped: “Golf can make me crabby too.”
