CRAYFISH AMPUTATES OWN CLAW TO ESCAPE BOILING POT
Determination is an understatement when it comes to one very brave crayfish.
An 11-second video posted online shows the crustacean on the edge of a steaming pot of soup. After one claw is hurt by the boiling liquid, the creature opts to chop the appendage off completely with its other, unaffected claw in order to escape.
The video came from a user on the Chinese social media site Weibo; user Jiuke says he spared the crayfish's life and is raising him at home.
