Ouch! Crab grabs otter by the eyebrow
Otter attacked by crab - Andre Sørlie
13:32 CEST+02:00
Amateur photographer Andre Sørlie captured a painful drama when he photographed an otter with a crab attached to its eyebrow by a claw.
"The otter looked very uncomfortable, but he dived and I never saw him come up again, so I hope he's OK," Sørlie told The Local. "I think he probably tried to get it off by smashing it on the rocks at the bottom. I think he's probably alive and well." 
Sørlie was on holiday with his in-laws on Ulvøya in the Oslofjord on Wednesday when he came across the animal, which swam towards him for several minutes before diving out of sight.
