Cannibal Crabs: Spider Crabs Feast on Remains of Fellow Creature

Free diver Jules Casey witnessed a darkly captivating scene on the sea floor of Port Phillip Bay, Victoria, Australia, on June 5: two spider crabs feasting on the remains of another crab. Casey captured this video as the crabs ate pieces of the carcass and pulled it back and forth between them. Small fish joined the feeding frenzy. Cannibalism is not uncommon among giant spider crabs during the moulting period, according to ABC News Australia. Credit: Onebreathdiver via Storyful
