VIDEO: Crab amputates its own claw

Filmed on a remote Pacific island, this video shows the incredible moment that a crab attacks the nest of some Boobie birds (oh grow up) only to be repelled with hardcore beak-led defense.

Retreating, the crab realises his limb has been pecked into uselessness and simply snips it off his body before flinging it to the ground. "Eff-you bird," he says as he stumbles home safe in the knowledge that his claw will grow back and he can return to eat the bird's baby's babies.

Nature. Hell yeah.
