This Massive Spider Crab Left Its Group To Chase A Scuba Diver And The Footage Is Terrifying

There are only five things I’m terrified of on this planet, three I’ll share with you right now: Jeff Goldblum’s Brundle-Fly, crippling loneliness , and the vast undiscovered depths of the sea.

Denizens of the deep, like these spider crabs, are probably just crustaceans trying to hustle in this underwater world of theirs. Still doesn’t make the footage you’re about to see any less terrifying.

A video posted by Pink Tank Scuba captures a group of enormous spider crabs scuttling across the ocean floor. One of the crabs notices the scuba diver and leaves the group to confront the diver head on.

Check out the unnerving footage, in high definition, as the creature cuddles up to the cameraman.

Luckily, the entire cast of crabs didn’t follow suit. Now that would have been an experience that would have chilled me to my core.

Watch Carnivorous Sea Creatures Feast On A Giant School Of Sardines

The ocean is filled with uncertainty and survival is never guaranteed. If you’re someone who fears the ocean, this video will give you another reason to stay out of the water.

The award winning series Planet Earth has always captured the most incredible natural phenomena in stunning high definition, with pristine detail. Now, thanks to a recently uploaded clip found on the BBC Earth YouTube page, the Internet got to witness a feverish feeding frenzy, that provided a first hand look at what goes on beneath the surface when the locals get hangry.

This aquatic battle started with some sea lions, trying to corner a school of thousands of sardines, which swim in circles, close to the surface, to avoid being caught. Interestingly enough, the sea lions can’t get the upper hand, without the help of additional predators.

Soon, tuna, diving sea birds, dolphins, and sharks start to join the party — quickly turning this necessary ritual of survival into an oceanic episode of Game of Thrones. Then, at the peak of the battle a giant whale comes into frame — swallowing countless sardines in one swift gulp.

The intensity of this clip showcases the instinctual efforts animals will put forth to work together to help ensure survival, proving that hunger’s grip on any creature will induce varied sorts of frenzy.

This is What an Egg Being Poached Looks Like Underwater

Egg-Poach-Go-Pro

Poaching an egg can be a tedious process. One wrong move and you’ve ruined a perfectly good chicken baby. It’s tough mastering the art, however, since after a few seconds the water can get pretty murky. Thanks to a GoPro, and a chef willing to throw one in boiling water, we now see a breathtaking side to the poaching process.

Davy Devaux, the guy that brought you pretty sushi art, used one of this century’s most valuable inventions to document the mysterious method behind poaching an egg. While it’s not jumping from space or even strapped to the roof of a car, it’s still pretty cool to see how it looks up close. It’s kind of hypnotizing if you think about it.

I wonder if it’s possible to deep-fry a GoPro?
