Somewhere, under the surface of the ocean, there is an entire world of animals and more drama than a Kardashian Christmas. But it’s rare to get a glimpse of all that entertainment, considering the aquatic environment. That was, until now.
In this next video, a pair of divers off the coast of Monterey, California captured a spectacular sight – a life and death struggle between a hungry octopus and a terrified little crab making every effort to escape. Initially, the octopus is unrelenting and the crab can’t manage to find a way to escape. But then, just when it seems like the octopus is finally going to enjoy its meal, there’s a total plot twist.
According to the divers the Harbor seal who spared the crab from imminent death is a friend of theirs named “Whiskers”. The bright and (usually) friendly creature tends to follow the divers when they’re diving and uses their dive lights to hunt for food.
