Giant Spider Crab Molting (time-Lapse) - YouTube

Time-lapse video of the giant crab spider discarding it's old shell.
Alice Fistr's insight:

Crustaceans have hard exoskeletons which protect them from predators. As they grow, the exoskeleton can become too tight. To get rid of the exoskeleton they have to molt and climb out of the existing shell before growing a new one. Read more at http://www.iflscience.com/plants-and-animals/time-lapse-molting-giant-spider-crab#YlwBiS2HsDYV8EtG.99

1. The terrible ability of the octopus! - YouTube

タコはおもしろいよー、とよく聞いていましたが、まさか本当にびんのフタを開けるなんて・・・!相模湾でもおなじみのマダコは、墨を吐くのはもちろん、すごく狭い隙間に隠れる、体の色と形を周囲に合わせる、そして、重い石をひきずって自分の巣穴にフタをする、などなどいろんな生態の持ち主なのです。ちなみに、夜暗がりで見ると、昼と...

Octopus vs jar

 

There are about 300 known species of octopus, and they are quite possibly the most intelligent invertebrates. Some species are able to change color at will to blend in with their surroundings when threatened, and some will even change their shape to mimic other animals to save themselves. Other octopuses have shown rudimentary tool use by arranging discarded shells as shelters. 

Because octopuses lack a skeleton, they are able to navigate through tight places. But what happens when there isn’t a hole to go through? Apparently, they just have to make one. This video shows an octopus that uses its remarkable flexibility and suctioned tentacles to its advantage when confined inside a jar.

2. Octopus Opening a Jar to Get Dinner! - YouTube

Alice Fistr's insight:

But what about when the situation is reversed and the octopus wants to get inside the jar? Opening jars can even be difficult for humans, but with a meal as an incentive, this octopus decided to give it a try.

Atlantic Sailfish Hunting Sardines (Normal & Slow Motion Attacks) - YouTube

This footage demonstrates how Atlantic sailfish (Istiophorus albicans) use their bill to hunt schooling prey (sardines in this case). The first and last vide...
Alice Fistr's insight:
Like swordfish, marlins, and other such flashy billfish, sailfish have long, pointy bills that look like deadly weapons, Musketeer-style. And new research shows that they are!  Nobody has ever showed exactly how the fish use their bills: Some say it’s for foraging, others say there are hydrodynamic benefits (like aerodynamic, but in the water). Peter Domenici of Italy's National Research Council in Torregrande, Andrew Wilson of Carleton University and colleagues show the first direct and “unequivocal evidence” that a combination of stealth and swiftness makes the sailfish bill an extremely effective adaption for feeding on schooling prey. The team captured high-speed, high-resolution videos of Atlantic sailfish (Istiophorus albicans) -- named such for their long, prominent dorsal fin -- brandishing their bill and injuring their prey in open water in the Yucatan Channel, Mexico.
