actually Kraken their was a Giant Crab in the fossil record it was a 4 meter long Horse shoe Crab and it weighed over 2 tones assumedly this was no freakish case of Gigantism Horseshoe crabs were much bigger.

Source of your information please, because as far as I'm aware Horseshoe crabs (which aren't actually crabs) have remained basically unchanged since the Triassic and the largest recorded specimen is about 2 foot long. If there had been a 4m long 2 tonne horse shoe crab discovered even partially then it would be widely acknowledged as the biggest arthropod to ever exist. Instead that honour goes jointly to the 2.5 metre long Arthropleura and Jaekelopterus.

Kraken if you had discover magazine subscription you'd have been able to read about the discovery of a huge horseshoe crablike shell fragment in Australia that is assumed to be the remnant of a massive domed Trilobite similar to the horseshoe crab exact estimates are unknown at this time but thickness of the fragment and the length of the curve put this at 4 meters or so this arthropod may have grown so large to compete with the over populated giant sea Scorpions that pre-dated the first land Mammal-like reptiles by a few billion years.

It is called a Lepidoptera from the Triasi/Jurassic period, around 190 million years ago... It is both a moth & a butterfly. They feed on leaves & fungi...It is usually benign, it wont attack unless you attack it...It can be tamed passively by using mushrooms...You are able to ride it when tamed...That is what I think it is... :D
