This Video of an Octopus Leaping Out of Water to Devour a Crab Proves None of Us Are Ever Safe

1 minute read

A woman in Australia was filming an innocent crab just hanging out near some water in Yallingup, West Australia, when things took a very disturbing turn. Out of nowhere, an octopus leapt from beneath the water’s surface and pounced on the crab. Then it slithered across the rocks as it secured the crab in its clutches.

After a bit of wrestling, the octopus manages to drag the crab back beneath the surface of the water, where it presumably had a nice little snack.

Keep this in mind next time you’re beside some water, thinking you’re safe from the evil, evil creatures lurking therein. You’re not safe. I’m not safe. No one is safe.
