This jaw-dropping footage by Porsche Indrisie shows off something quite unexpected.

"I have a keen interest in sea life and have been working in my dad’s family business, Burswood Seafood, for years now. I’ve always got my camera out taking photos of interesting things but this time I decided to try and capture video. Trying to steady my footing, I edged closer to the crab, and was totally surprised to witness the octopus clean it up right in front of me! Like an alien creature! I had no idea they could launch out of the water like that. Astonished, I called out to my sister who quickly clambered over. She missed the action but was keen to see the footage. I’m grateful to have been filming as I’m sure no-one would have believed me without it! It was just a very unexpected moment, perfectly timed." - Porsche Indrisie
