Crayfish severs own claw to escape boiling pot, becomes viral video hero

Crayfish

"I let him live", he said. The man decided that he admired the animal's courage so much he made a decision to "adopt it" and has taken it home to live in an aquarium.

In an impressive display of strength and determination, it used its right claw to slide its left one off into the soup at a restaurant in China.

The feat was captured on video and originally posted to Chinese social media site Weibo by a user named Jiuke.

The clip has racked up more than a million views online, with people urging Jeiku to rescue the crayfish and spare its life.


Jeiku replied: 'I let him live. Without a second thought, the crayfish clamped down on the disabled limb with its remaining good claw, and cut off the disabled claw like it was some meaningless dead weight.

According to Chinese state news agency, Xinhua, China is the world's largest crayfish producer.

A number of specialist restaurants proliferated across the country with the creature garnering popularity particularly because it, in some way, encourages social interaction due to diners having to keep their phones away to peel away the shells.

The crayfish industry in the nation holds a multi-billion dollar value and production of the farmed seafood tripled between 2007 and 2016 to take the total tons produced to 850,000.
