This Footage of Spider Crabs Fighting a Stingray is the Most Bizarre Video You’ll See All Day

This video of spider crabs fighting a stingray makes us think the ocean floor might as well be an alien planet.

The thousands of crabs in this video look like an unruly army on the march. The smaller crabs ride on the bigger crabs with their pinchers raised like Romans riding into battle. In the midst of the chaos, some of the biggest crabs wrestle each other to the death.

The battle-like scene gets even weirder when a stingray floats over the crabs, similar to an alien spaceship ready to abduct its prey. Actually that’s exactly what it does. Uploaded by Varimage Box, this is one of the weirdest nature videos we’ve ever seen, and the soundtrack makes it that much more bizarre.

This footage was originally part of the BBC documentary Life: Creatures of the Deep
