Friday Cephalopod: Winning!

This week, everyone has been sending me a link to that horrible series of photos showing a seal gnawing and dismembering an octopus (no, I will not link to it! I might cry.) So instead I’m showing you a happy movie of a successful octopus gnawing and dismembering a crab.

Well, happy for everyone except the crustaceans who read Pharyngula.

    Cephalopods are impressive, but that video was awful! Low resolution. Jumpy editing. Excessive close-ups so you couldn’t see anything.

  2. Holms says

    No documentary maker could compete with Attenborough’s thoughtful observation, so instead it seems they all went for this silly, hype-everything approach. “…Powerful legs drive it into gaps in rocks, a gladiator safe in its fortress.” What the fuck.
