A Chinese live-streaming host has been left terrified by an octopus while trying to film herself eating the eight-armed creature alive.
The octopus apparently tried to fend off the attempted diner by sticking to her face with its suckers.
The woman shouted in pain as she attempted to take the animal’s tentacles off her skin.
An octopus typically uses its tentacles to catch prey or defend itself from potential attacks.
The live-streaming host from China is seen shouting in pain as she attempted to remove the octopus’s tentacles from her face.
It uses its long and strong arms to wrap around the other animals and its suckers to tightly attach to their flesh.
A mature giant Pacific octopus has some 280 suckers on each arm, and according to statistics each sucker contains thousands of chemical receptors.
The 50-second video was filmed by a blogger known as ‘seaside girl Little Seven’on popular short-video platform Kuaishou.
At the start of the clip, the octopus was already stuck onto her face but the host did not appear to be scared of it.
The woman cries ‘I’ll eat it in the next video‘ before realising she has a bloody cut on her face. The video blogger lives in Lianyungang and loves eating seafood.
An octopus generally uses its tentacles to catch prey or defend itself from potential attacks. She can be heard telling her fans ‘look how hard it’s sucking’ as she attempted to remove a tentacle from her upper lip.
Realising that the octopus wouldn’t let go, the host started to freak out and cry. She screamed in front of the camera ‘painful‘ and ‘I can’t remove it‘ while using all her power trying to take the octopus off her left cheek.
Her face became nearly distorted in the process before the octopus finally gave in and let go. Once she removed the octopus, the host remembered her original goal as she said ‘I’ll eat it in the next video‘ while holding the octopus in her hands.
Then she was aware the octopus had sucked onto her face so hard it left a small bloody wound on her cheek. She cried: ‘My face is disfigured.’
Known as ‘seaside girl Little Seven’, the video blogger has previously filmed herself playing with octopi at seaside and gorging on a spice octopus in order to gain followers
The video blogger lives in the city of Lianyungang and loves eating seafood, according to information on her Kuaishou account. She has eaten many types of cooked seafood including crayfish and lobsters in her shows since she started her live-streaming channel about two weeks ago.
It appears that she is keen to become famous as she complained in a previous clip: ‘Why none of my clips ended up on the trending topics chart?’ Her latest octopus video has become a trending topic on China’s social media platforms.
On China’s Twitter-like Weibo, one viewer ‘liying Bao Yuyin’ said: ‘She deserves it. She tried to eat the octopus and the octopus tried to eat her too.’Another user ‘Di Ke Tou’ said in the same post: ‘An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.’
