    Well little Kraven, when a robot and a crustacean love each other very much he uses his hard drive to impregnate the crustaceans eggs, however the process of robo-insemination is far too complex for the human mind.

    And you know this as fact because...? Sharks? Not so much. The plane would have sunk and ocean floor dwelling crabs and other carrion eaters would have eaten her. Stop abusing the word theory.
