A video posted to Chinese media platform Weibo by social media user Jiuke captures a crawfish do the unthinkable in order to save its own life.

The video was shot at a restaurant located in Suzhou City, China in Anhui Province where you see the crawfish take drastic measures to avoid death by steamer pot. It literally ripped off its own claw. Watch the clip below in case you don't believe me.

According to BBC, Jiuke reportedly chose to spare the little crawfish and took it home to live in an aquarium.

Sidenote: China is reportedly the worlds largest source of crawfish, or as they like to refer to them, crayfish. So, that means I'm vacationing in China for my birthday next year with my own seasoning of course. Who's coming with me? Get your passport now.
