Australia's home to some of the world's most stunning examples of natural beauty in the world, like Whitehaven Beach, the Great Barrier Reef, and Ruby Rose. It's also bristling with animals who'd like nothing more than to sting, eat, or straight up murder you, which tempers the whole beauty thing if we're being honest.
The video above is an example of Australia's latter, wilder side, showing a crab that's minding its own business on the rocks one minute and fending off a sneak attack from a ninja octopus the next, all to the glorious narration of the inimitable Ozzy Man (an Aussie Youtuber who reviews/commentates things).
The struggle's pretty brief, with the octopus eventually dragging the crab back into the watery crevice from whence it came -- a different turn of events than you usually find in crab battles. Either way, it's a stark reminder that while Australia gives with one hand, it takes with the other hand... or tentacle.
