A crab minding its own business on the rocks outside a tide pool in Western Australia was ambushed by a hungry octopus, shocking a woman who happened to be watching. She captured it all on video.

Porsche Indrisie of Applecross, Australia, happened upon a crab while exploring the tide pools of Yallingup when this happened (warning for the holy “expletive” at the end):

The video generated so much interest on her Facebook page that Indrisie was prompted to post it on YouTube, too.

“I don’t know why I started filming it, but I always have a camera in front of my face,” Indrisie told Fairfax Media via WAtoday.com.

“My sister and I were at a place called the aquarium in Yallingup and I saw this crab, so I stumbled across some rocks to film it. It was very random.

“When I first saw the octopus, I thought it was a black crab, it moved so fast.

“I was just so surprised the octopus could leap out of the water like that.”

She isn’t the only one.
