This crayfish is one crafty crustacean.
A crayfish desperate to remove itself from the menu sacrificed one of its own claws to escape a boiling pot of spicy soup at a restaurant in China.
In footage viewed more than 900,000 times online, the crustacean is seen gripping one of its claws before successfully detaching it and fleeing.
The dramatic film was captured by social media user Jiuke, who posted it on the popular Chinese platform Weibo.
Jiuke later told users of the site that he had adopted the crayfish as a pet. Click here to read the rest of the story at BBC News.
