Lightfoot crabs ambushed by eels and octopuses | Blue Planet II – BBC


The moray eel The chain moray is a specialist crab hunter It’s blunt teeth can easily grip and crush a crab’s shell It’s the crab’s deadliest enemy that was close, they should be safe now WaiTLOOKOUTAGAIN But the crabs’ feeding grounds are still a long way off They must press on Halfway But their enemy has other ideas Crossing the land To reset the ambush To feed, the crabs must keep going But nowhere is safe An octopus, also a crab-killer The crabs make a dash for it Made it! Risking life and limb to graze on these seaweed pastures But in two hours time, when the tide starts to turn They will have to run the gauntlet all over again

  8. when David Attenborough narrates you running late, you know for sure the situation is DIRE
    Unable to feed he runs off to school, though humans can live 3 weeks or more without food his tummy rumbles and his feet are just starting to skimp. If he doesn't finish his homework on the bus this will all be for nothing…

  9. Read the title as "Lightfoot crabs amused by eels and octopuses" clicked on the video and hey ho it's attempted crab murder. Just wanted some light crabby boi entertaiment.

  10. This kind of crab walks and runs forward and even jump 😱😱 unlike the typical crabs the we know which walk sidewards 🤔🤔 now i know 😬 thanks BBC 😬

  11. Imagine being one of the 560 idiots who thumbed down this – no wait; I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. Lets hope David Attenborough is immortal…
