New York, NY - Some people say you can catch a lot of things riding the subway in New York, and's proof!

Yep, you can catch crabs, alright.

Riders taking the 'N' train in New York spotted about 50 of these creepy crustaceans.

So what do you do with a crab like this?

Well in this video, at least one passenger tried to help the crusty crawlers by pouring some bottled water on them.

One guy was coming home from a Mets game and said the stinky creatures made the whole subway car "smell horrid!"

Of course, plenty of subway riders can be pretty crabby, but this is ridiculous!

It's the mystery of the crabs on the 'N' train...

Yeah, no one knows how they got there or what happened to them.

These little creatures are known to travel in packs, and sure enough they took in at least Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Queens.

So, they definitely took a bite out of the Big Apple!

Who knows where the crabby cruisers will show up next?
