This hilarious video has captured the moment a crab threatened a chef – by waving around a knife. The bizarre footage shows the crustacean scuttling sideways with the sharp object grasped between its pincers. As the chef gets close to the creature, it waves the knife menacingly, in an attempt to get him to back off.

It is thought the footage was recorded in a restaurant in Brazil although the exact location is not specified. The video, which was uploaded to YouTube on January 20, has now had more than 163,000 views. Amused YouTube users were quick to comment on the footage, with one writing: “Don’t eat the crab in Brazil…it can be a little…tough.”

Another added: “I really hope nobody ate him.”
