WATCH: Starfish Forces Microchip Out of Body in Most UNEXPECTED Way Ever

Students at the University of Southern Denmark (and yes, they are speaking in Danish) reveal the strange way in which a starfish said “heck no” to having a microchip planted within its body. Luckily, you don’t really have to understand what the students are saying to comprehend what’s happening.

See the above video, and we’re guessing you’ll be quite amazed at what happens.

Cannibal Animals — 7 Surprising Creatures That Eat Their Own Kind

Cats

You may think your sweet little feline friend wouldn’t hurt a fly, but domestic cats have been known to eat their own kittens if they become stuck during childbirth. They do this in order to save their own lives and take care of the rest of the litter.

Octopus

Not only do these eight-tentacled cephalopods prey on other members of their own kinds, but weirdly enough, when under stress they’ll even eat themselves in an act of self-cannibalism.

Redback Spiders

Another interesting variant of this behavior is sexual cannibalism, in which a participant eats its mate either during or immediately after sex.  In the redback spider’s case, the male actually helps by climbing into the female’s mouth during intercourse, in order to increase chances of reproduction since it releases its sperm during this process.

Polar Bears

While not an innate behavior, researchers have found the polar bear population has increasingly started to prey on weak cubs, as sea ice disappears and makes it more and more difficult for these bears to reach their traditional food sources.

Bull Frog

A bull frog has one voracious appetite. It will eat everything from birds to snakes to insects and yes, even other bull frogs. They’ll eat larvae, tadpoles and newly metamorphosed frogs.

King Cobras

People fear king cobras, and for good reason: One single bite has enough venom to kill 20 people or even an elephant. Fortunately, this famous snake doesn’t care for people as food. Apart from lizards, eggs and small mammals, it will also devour other snakes as well, both the venomous and non-venomous kind.

Lobsters

Although these crustaceans are known to attack each other in captivity, it wasn’t until fairly recently that researchers observed an increase in lobster cannibalism in the wild. Marine biologists believe this may be due to a rise in sea temperature, which encourages more reproduction, larger broods, and leads to adult lobsters preying on the younger ones.

Pigs

We think piglets are just about the cutest things in the world – which is why it’s heartbreaking to learn that approximately 5% of first time pig moms practice a form of overt aggression towards their young, which can often result in cannibalistic infanticide.
