VIDEO: Octopus Launches Surprise Attack on Unsuspecting Crab Before Dragging it Underwater

Nature is simply awesome. The video you’re about to see is shocking, but shows the reality of the animal kingdom in that it’s kill or be killed.

From The Daily Mail:

It seems like a highly unlikely case but extraordinary footage has emerged of what appears to be an octopus attacking a crab.

Believed to be filmed in Yallingup, a town southwest of Western Australia, a beachgoer is quite aptly shocked by what she has witnessed.

The footage begins as the crab edges closer to a rockpool, seemingly testing the waters.

But much to its unforeseen misfortune, a swift moving octopus launches at the crab and drags it back into the water. 

The woman filming the scene, believed to be Porsche Indrisie, certainly got more than she bargained for when she decided to film the crab.

‘There’s an octopus eating a crab!’ she yells as the tentacled sea creature shoots out of the water and tries to swallow the crustacean whole.

‘I didn’t know why I chose to film this crab, but thought I would try and get closer to it but something else beat me to it,’ Ms Indrisie later wrote under her video which she uploaded on YouTube.

The video is below:

That’s just amazing. I mean, I feel bad for the poor crab, but that’s the way of the world.
