A Chinese blogger could be seen writhing in pain and crying after the octopus she wanted to eat alive stuck to her face and wouldn’t let go.
The woman, who appeared to be so desperate to become popular with her blogging activities on the platform “seaside girl Little Seven”, told her followers she intended to eat the creature.
But in the clip she put online, the octopus starts sucking on her face instead.
In the video, the Chinese blogger can be seen struggling to pull the creature off her face as it wrapped its tentacles into the skin on her face. When her struggles seemed futile, she began crying and tried even harder to get the animal off her, Metro UK reports.
When she finally does so, she notices the small bloody wound on her cheek.
She cries: “My face is disfigured.”
At the end of the clip, the host remembered her original goal as she shouted: “I’ll eat it in the next video”.
An octopus typically uses its tentacles to catch prey or defend itself from potential attacks, Mirror UK reports.
It uses its long and strong arms to wrap around the other animals and its suckers to tightly attach to its flesh.
A mature giant Pacific octopus has some 280 suckers on each arm, and each sucker contains thousands of chemical receptors.
