Watch This Octopus Run On Land To Catch His Dinner

Watch This Octopus Run On Land To Catch His Dinner

There are few things I know with absolute certainty in this life, but the fact that octopuses are sea-dwelling creatures, is one.

Octopuses live in the sea, we've all seen Finding Nemo, we've all seen this amazing battle between a massive octopus and giant seal, taking place in the sea, where octopuses live. The sea.

So, imagine my surprise when I came across this video online:

You having that? That's not the sea. It's a rock pool and then, whoa, what's that?

The octopus is so hungry, or so bad-ass, he's willing to leave his watery home to have a fight with a crab. I can't believe how quick octopuses can move; he's not messing about this one.

Porsche Indrisie, who captured the footage, said: "I have a keen interest in sea life and have been working in my dad's family business, Burswood Seafood, for years now.

"I've always got my camera out taking photos of interesting things but this time I decided to try and capture video.

"Trying to steady my footing, I edged closer to the crab, and was totally surprised to witness the octopus clean it up right in front of me. Like an alien creature.

"I had no idea they could launch out of the water like that.

"Astonished, I called out to my sister who quickly clambered over. She missed the action but was keen to see the footage.

"I'm grateful to have been filming as I'm sure no-one would have believed me without it. It was just a very unexpected moment, perfectly timed."

It looks like it's almost certainly game over for that crab, too, but fair play to the octopus, that's dedication to the hunt.

RIP little crab.
