Crab Tries To Snatch GoPro Camera

GoPro cameras are fun for everyone, crustaceans included.

Watch as a crab emerges from its hole, inches toward Diederick Ryan’s GoPro HERO3+ Black Edition camera and attempts to run off with it.

Equally amusing is the discreet extra crab hanging out in the background.

Ryan’s description of how it went down:

Bored in Paradise… set my GoPro Hero 3 up outside one of the crab holes at a dive resort in Fiji (Maidive). I used the new GoPro app and wifi to sit and wait for the crab to appear and hit record from the building in the background. It all looked great until he disappeared with the camera down his hole. As I ran over I was at least glad to still see the app on my phone showing daylight (the shot of the palm trees). He tried to drag it down further as I went to grab it, almost taking it too far out of reach but luckily I got it just in time. Glad everyone enjoys the vid as much as we did.

Once again, a play-by-play:
