Extraordinary footage has captured a pair of cutthroat eels fighting dirty to get a crab's squid dinner.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) filmed the tug-of-war during its Deep Connections 2019 mission inside Kinlan Canyon, off the coast of the US and Canada.
The NOAA says cutthroat eels are hardcore eaters and formidable deep sea predators.
So that makes the eels odds on for a squid feast, right?
See who wins in the video above.
