A new undersea video is going viral for all the right reasons. Specifically: fish-on-fish-on-snail action, as well as a shocking twist.

The video, released by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) Ocean Exploration and Research Program, opens on a scene somewhere off the coast of the Southeastern United States, where an an Atlantic midshipman fish (Porichthys plectrodon) lays in wait, buried face-up in a shallow hole. Arrayed around its grim, ugly face are the local invertebrate bottom-dwellers, a sea snail and several quill worms. They all inch toward the precipice as if they're curious, apparently oblivious to the danger.
