You know the myth of how your brain stays alive for ten seconds after you get decapitated? Well it looks like for tuna, the entire body stays alive… for two minutes.

A video was uploaded to Twitter last week by user Yutaka Suzuki, showing a decapitated tuna that had also been cut in half. Despite the creature’s less than desirable state, it can be seen jumping about for a solid two minutes. Yutaka posted the footage with the caption, “The vitality of the fish is amazing.” I’m not sure if I’d use the word “amazing” to describe it:
I will never understand what makes that situation so funny.
For more of the same, here’s a horrific video of a live eel on a Korean barbecue. Enjoy.
