Video shows octopus making quick work of food trap while fighting off shark with one tentacle

038

I would bet on the octopus every time. Save our Seas Foundation released video of their latest test-run of a baited remote underwater video (BRUV) system, a system intended to provide a cheap, simple way to monitor underwater life. The video captured a remarkable scene where an octopus not only made quick work of the underwater food canister, but did so while fending off a pajama catshark with just one tentacle!
