Watch an Octopus Pursue Crab in Mesmerizing Chase | National Geographic ctm magazine

Watch a deadly game of chase between an octopus and a crab. Filmed in Rose Bay, Sydney, Australia, the octopus pursues the crab by inhaling water and contracting muscles that shoot it out through a siphon, propelling the octopus in any direction. It uses its agile tentacles to reach out and grab the crab, pulling it down into the water. Octopuses use their sharp beaks to break through the hard exteriors of crabs, one of their dietary staples.

    The plural of octopus is octopi not octopuses.
    Octopi is the species phylum.
    Try and speak English not American.

    Stupid mom in the background realizes "oh he's chasing a crab". NO YOU FUCKING TARD THEY SWIMMING IN CIRCLES FOR FUN.

    I was just thinking about how crunchy a meal it would be

    I think the we also see the octopus camouflage itself as it settles down to feed.

    Have anyone been pinched by a crab before? I know it hurts like hell. I am sure the crab must have put the pinch on the octopus once it was being pulled in but somehow the octopus wasn't bothered in the least. I find that very interesting.

    So, I was taught in school it was called Octopie not Octopuses for plural. I just looked it up and apparently I was taught wrong.

    This is what happened when Squidward never received his paycheck from Mr. Krabs.

  • John-Paul C on June 10, 2017

    I didn't realize Crabs could swim like that through the water.

    I love these videos but I always have to watch them at least twice because I have to read the captions. My life is so frustrating!
