that poor shrimp never had a chance...

octopi are terrifying to anything that happens to be relatively their size or smaller.

Why do japanese shows always have the writing and the people`s faces on the top of the screen?

Also, who actually thought the shrimp stood a chance? He`s like the crayfish in Bug Fights.

It`s not a pistol shrimp, anyhow. It`s a mantis shrimp. They`re even cooler than a pistol shrimp.

They have laws in Japan that allow this. It`s the same reason why the Japanese bugs can fight each other. It isn`t the US, so there`s no PETA.

I would argue that this is animal cruelty, mainly because pistol shrimp aren`t meant to be octopus food. ):

this isnt illegal because it probably counts as just feeding the octopus..

So, you can`t fight chickens, but you can fight shrimp and octopi? What is the difference between the two? besides one being underwater? seeing as it was in a Plexiglas tank, I would call it animal cruelty, but then again, it`s Japan... By that Logic, I could film live two mountain goats ramming their head together for a mate and have people bet on the winner...

What is Kaishu?

Also...they have an extremely twisted porn industry, but they can`t show pussy or penis...which to me seems very weird.

"So c*ck fighting is illegal, but this is fine?"

The only thing illegal in Japan is disliking hentai. Anything else is okay. Anyways, isn`t this just the Japanese`s way of getting over the fact that kaishu (sp?) isn`t real?

The shrimp didn`t even seem to attempt to fight back, because I swear if it got a proper hit on the octopus it would kill it.

I think a Giant Squid Vs. a Sperm Whale would`ve been more fair.

That octopus is an non-nice individual.
Poor shrimp. It was a pretty shrimp.

>>Next time, have an Octopus vs a Crab or something.

Wouldn`t that still be unfair with crabs having claws?
IMO it should be a squid vs. an octopus :D

"not fair, what form of attack does the shrimp have?"

"[the] mantis shrimp sport powerful claws that they use to attack and kill prey by spearing, stunning or dismemberment [...] some larger species of mantis shrimp are capable of breaking through aquarium glass with a single strike from this weapon"-Wiki

Well, there`s no PETA in Japan, is there? ;)

Isn`t that a mantis shrimp ? Those things are aggressive as hell. I was rooting for the octopus.
