This Video Of An Octopus Eating A Crab Will Make You Jump

All hail the Muhammad Ali Of The Sea

One minute you’re filming a giant crab about to take a dip in a rock pool, the next you’re watching a full-on octopus assault on said crab. At which point, if you believe in the lore of internet comments sections, you’re meant to keep calm, sprout amazing camera skills, and add a David Attenborough-level voicetrack for when the clip goes viral on YouTube.

The amateur filmer, Porsche Indrisie, however, reacted in much the same way we’d expect to, by yelping, getting a serious shake on and shouting “Holy Shit!”

And to her critics she had this to say: “Maybe you can hold the camera steady the next time an octopus jumps out of the water and attacks a crab!”
