Patrick Webster and Connor Gallagher were diving in Monterey Bay, California when they captured one of the most exciting fights in nautical history. A red octopus had a swimmer crab on the ropes, and it looked like it was just a matter of time before the crab got eaten.
But then, the battle took a shocking twist of M. Night Shyamalan proportions. Watch the thrilling conclusion in the videos below.

Holy shit, I did not see that coming! The hunter became the hunted, as a hungry harbor seal came out of nowhere. As a lifelong Maryland resident, I couldn’t be happier that the crab was able to survive. The only time I like seeing crabs get eaten is when I’m the one enjoying the tasty crustaceans.
It’s so nice to see a crab pick up a W for a change, though. Revenge is a dish best served cold, and crabs everywhere finally got some octopus vengeance for this vicious homicide.
