    "Social climbers of a new kind - crabs! - These gentry were originally imported from China, but multiplied so fast they were becoming a nuisance in the Elbe!"

Hundreds of crabs are seen at the base of a wall which meets the sea."They climb trees, walls - in fact, anything that gets them out of the water!" Man knocks a couple of crabs off a tree. C/U of crab moving up a tree trunk. Incomplete story.
