        I was wondering if they might be some sort of eel (fried).

          Congratulation Seagull. It is small Eels, stir fried with some chili sprinkled on, Szechuan style.
          Size is from 5 to 10 cm. only and you can eat everything. Very good and fresh. (live)

            The size of the Crabs are amazing, although there isn't too much in way of comparison of scale here.

            The selection in the Roast shop is also wide ranging:

              Here is what they look like just before going in the wok:

              (Not the same batch. These are a bit bigger)

              PS> The price is RMB 25 per katie (600 gr.) (Approx. USD 5.50/kg)

                      Correct again!!! You must have seen these in Thailand, where they are very popular "street food".
                      For those who have never tested these they tastes a bit like hazzle nuts.

                      Here is what they look like before frying:

                      I have never tried the water beatles in the next tray though.(dunno)
