A HUNGRY OCTOPUS in was filmed during a surprise land attack of a crab, by Porsche Indrisie at Yallingup, south-western WA.

Porsche just happened to be in the right place at the right time filming a crab, when the octopus leapt out of the water and chased it down, dragging it back into the water.

The video has gone viral, with more than 6.5 million views since it was posted on YouTube a week ago.
