Luo, who lives on Orchid Island (蘭嶼) off the coast of Taitung County, said that when she was sitting on the toilet, she heard some jarring noises and lowered her head to take a look. What she saw made her scream: "Was it a tarantula?" she said was her first thought.
Later, she learned that other members of her family had seen the crab emerging from the toilet. They had tried to catch it, but the wily crustacean proved hard to trap.
Luo said that she was curious about how the animal had crawled into the toilet, indicating she was sympathetic to the hardships it surely endured on its way to visit her. She later decided to post a photo of it on social media. [FULL STORY]
