DENVER — When most people think of octopuses, they imagine them as they live in aquariums: drifting lazily with the currents, maybe clinging to the glass like a squishy child’s toy.
Most people do not imagine them exploding out of a tidepool, spearing a razor-sharp beak into a crab’s body and wrestling the helpless crustacean back into the water to suck out its innards.
But that’s the event a woman in Yallingup, Western Australia, captured last week.
“I didn’t know why I chose to film this crab, but thought I would try and get closer to it,” Porsche Indrisie said. “But something else beat me to it.”
Just one more reason that Australia is a fascinating, scary place.
