Wow! I'm surprised the shark didn't put up much of a fight. Asleep, maybe?

that first one was crazy, they must have used infrared to find the octopus.

i've seen the shark octo video before, they put the shark in the tank to see how the octopus kills them, morally wrong to me, waste of a rare animal.

if you think about it, really the shark didn't stand a chance with those 8 (octopus have incredibly strong) arms coming at you, and if the sharks mouth is taken care of, what's he gonna do.

one creature that humans may fear, is just another animals prey...

Have you seen the Octopus escaping through a one inch hole video? I can't imagine having a "tight enough lid" to contain one of these in a tank.

yea i saw it during my searches on youtube. what amazed me most is how they can slip thru those tiny holes while keeping all their functions, the beak, their nerves and brain all intact. those animals are astounding!

EDIT: cause of forum restrictions on posting, i have to post this here...

well, here's a few more vids on our eight legged friend:

the music i don't care for, but the vid is cool:



watch the hunter vs the hunted:
