Woman Gets Crab Stuck In Her Ear While Snorkelling

Woman Gets Crab Stuck In Her Ear While Snorkelling

She got a little closer to the marine life than she'd hoped to


A woman got a crab stuck in her ear while snorkelling, and you want to see it don't you, ya little weirdo? Well, here you go:

The woman in question was snorkelling in San Juan, the capital of Puerto Rico, when she got more up close and personal with marine life than she had ever intended.

In a video posted on TikTok, a pal can be seen taking tweezers to her ear in a desperate bid to extricate the creepy crab.

After a lot of prying – and agonising waiting – the scamp eventually emerged from its adopted home, much to the poor snorkeler's relief.

Captioning the video, she wrote: "Snorkelling in San Juan. A f***ing crab yo."

Yeah, just the thought of that crustacean's little legs scuttling around the old earhole is enough to make you feel a little queasy, isn't it?

The clip has gone viral, racking up 2.4 million views and thousands of comments.

One person wrote: "My anxiety was on 10 watching and waiting."

Another said: "Thanks for the warning. Earplugs when in the water while on vacation."

A third added: "New fear unlocked."

Not the one that, is it?

Still, it could have been worse, it could have been a spider. That's marginally worse, right?

Last October, a spider was discovered hanging out in a woman's ear canal in China.

The creepy-crawly had made its way inside the ear of a woman from Zhuzhou, in Hunan Province, and she went to hospital after feeling an unbearable itchiness in her ear.

The woman, named as Yi in local media reports, had been out the night before and also realised she could hear a weird noise – which is so grim when you know what was making those noises.

According to Beijing News, the doctor found the spider crawling around 'on the surface of the tympanic membrane' of her ear.

The medic inserted a small camera to take a look, with horrifying footage showing the arachnid scurrying around her ear canal, rushing towards the camera a few seconds into the clip.

Thankfully, the doctor was able to remove the spider using an electric otoscope, which is a device used to look inside people's ears.

If you've not quite had your fill of creepy animals in ears just yet, then you can check out the footage of Yi's ear spider here.
