We've seen before how terrifying the denizens of the deep can be when the hunger pangs set in. Spider crabs, for example, chill us to our very cores.
A new video has surfaced that shows a seemingly harmless caridean shrimp battling it out with a dragonfish. The footage, Newsweek reports, then takes a pretty dark turn as the shrimp begins to tear open the fish's stomach, exposing a second fish that the shrimp precedes to extract.
The footage was obtained by a team of scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
Definitely not a video for the squeamish, but it's fascinating to get a look at the dichotomy of the underwater world.
It reminds us of two kaiju tearing each other apart. Makes us take a second look the second time we try to eat shrimp.
