WARNING: Graphic language 

This crab never knew what hit him.

An octopus in western Australia snagged a crab for dinner, despite the crustacean being out of the water.

The strike occurs at about the 20-second mark, then the octopus drags its dinner back into the water. According to the video’s description, the footage was shot in Yallingup, Western Australia.
