I’m not a big fan of the Texas gulf coast, which is the closest beach to where I live. The water is not clear at all, which means Jaws could set upon you at any time with no warning. I don’t have a problem with clear Caribbean waters since I can see any potentially lethal sea creatures sneaking up on me.
I never really thought about tidal pools as being places of death, but after seeing this video, I am rethinking that position. Here you see a little crab minding his own business, eyeballing some giant human with a camera. Out of nowhere jumps a disgusting octopus with tentacles flopping everywhere. It then proceeds to go all Zoidberg on the crab. It’s really disgusting.
If that thing jumped out at me, I’d probably die. This is yet another reason for me to stay on dry land.
