Red octopus faces off with a swimmer crab

Two angles: "This video was shot at San Carlos Beach in Monterey, CA—aka "the Breakwater". My friend Connor and I were doing a night dive, and we were joined by "Whiskers", a local harbor seal who often accompanies divers at night to hunt with our lights. We saw him earlier in the dive, but by the time Connor found the octopus, we hadn't seen him in a while and figured he left to go hunt elsewhere. He was entirely out of my mind when he swooped in and ate the octopus, so I was completely surprised. You can hear me laughing in the background after the chomp."
