A crab with a strong will to live was filmed climbing out of a pot of heating water and switching off the hot plate to save its comrades.
The day was not going well for the crab gymnast and three of his pincered pals, as they can be spotted in the video scrambling for their lives amid a few knobs of butter in a frying pan.
One of the crabs takes his fate into his own hands, however, springing from the burning, buttery flames out of the pan and onto the electric hob. Our intrepid crustacean then descends the hob – all of this done sideways, of course – before locating the off switch and managing to deploy it with his claws.
The sweet beep of survival can be heard as the video ends, presumably whereupon his crab companions start to cheer in delights at their life-saving, soft-shelled chum.
