Nice video Joel.

it clearly shows the way that cuttlefish will always wait to get a shot at the crab's back and then dive in.

Absolute quality!!!!!

I have to ask thou out of curiosity...... since that crab was almost the size of Wasabe, do they often take crabs the same size (or bigger) as them and does this go for octo's aswell????

Or am I right in thinkin that octo's would prefer smaller?

Yea, they will usually take on stuff larger or the same size as it but only seem to half finish eating it. This goes for octos too.
