The KING CRAB has been in the spotlight in Oregon for months now, thanks to its capture by a fisherman last month in Lake Tahoe.
Now, the king crab is back in the headlines again, thanks in part to a post on Reddit.
Redditors have been sharing photos of the king croc in various places around the state, and the king is also showing up at other popular restaurants.
The crab was caught near the mouth of the Salmon River in Eugene in the middle of the day on July 11.
It was tagged by a fishing boat and returned to the water.
The fish was then released back into the lake and caught again, this time by a different fishing boat.
King crabs can grow to up to 12 inches long and can weigh up to 10 pounds.
They are commonly known as saltwater fish.
There have been reports of King Crab bites in Oregon.
In January 2016, a fisherman in New England caught a King Crab and reported it to the State Fish and Wildlife Department, which investigated.
The bite was considered to be non-life-threatening, but it took a while for the authorities to figure out what the problem was.
