You guys bring the garlic butter and a few of those crabs, I'll bring some Old Bay and a steamer that will hold them.

I've seen pictures of these crabs before, they are very creepy, but supposed to taste very swwet like coconut, since that it what they eat. I would love to taste one some day, just not have to catch it and cook it.
