Octopus nearly rips off face of Chinese blogger who tried to eat it alive

A Chinese blogger live-streamed herself attempting to eat an octopus alive when the sea creature nearly ripped her face off.

Footage shows the octopus sticking to the woman’s face with its suckers and refusing to let go.

The woman can be seen screaming as she struggles to remove the animal’s tentacles.

When she is finally able to pry the sea creature from her face, she realises there is a bloody mark on her face and cries to the camera.

The video was shot in Lianyungang, Jiangsu province, on March 4.
