Crafty crayfish saves itself from boiling pot in China by pulling off its own claw

A ‘crafty crayfish’ has become an online hit after it removed one of its own claws to escape a boiling pot of soup in China.

Footage of the crustacean making a daring escape to freedom from the side of a pot of spicy broth after it detached the claw was widely shared.

The clip was posted on Sina Weibo, Chinese social media, by a user called Jiuke, who later said that he had adopted the crayfish.

"I let him live, I already took him home and am raising him in an aquarium," Jiuke said.

Crayfish is a hugely popular dish in China, where they are often eaten in spicy sauce.
