A video of an octopus attacking a crab has received over two million views on YouTube.
The footage shows an unsuspecting crab approaching a small rock pool in Yallingup, western Australia.
In this week's terrifying news, a woman in Australia captured an octopus slithering onto land to capture an unsuspecting crab in its clutches before plunging back into the ocean for dinnertime.
Now that we know that octopi are equal-opportunity predators, we have to consider the fact that they are almost certainly testing the waters for total land domination. It's probably a good time for the human race to figure out how we can all grow six extra arms so it's an even fight.
As the oblivious crab reaches the water's edge the predatory octopus springs from the deep and starts to wrestle the crab across the rocks.
As the octopus recoils from the claws of the crab the woman who captured the attack – Porsche Indrisie – can be heard yelling, 'There's an octopus eating a crab!'
The attacker quickly overpowers its prey and drags it down beneath the surface and presumably to a grim end.
