    The cephalopod being eaten is an octopus, not a squid and I am not sure about the size of those "giant" spider crabs but an interesting video. Cudos to the two YouTube commenters that noted the correct ceph id.

    I believe this is the crab species info,
    from an article about discovering a new species. So a large crab might have a body length of up to 7" and legs up to a foot long. I did not find information on the "average" size that would be more representative of the video.
