This crab never knew what hit him and the person shooting video was also caught off guard.  The crustacean was out of the water when an octopus in western Australia snagged it for dinner.

The strike occurs at about the 20-second mark, then the octopus drags its dinner back into the water after a bit of time out on the rock. According to the video’s description, the footage was shot in Yallingup, Western Australia.
