Amazing video!!! while trying to get video of a wild octopus, it suddenly dashed towards a free diving guy and stealed his shiny new camera from out of his hands, then swims off, all while the camera is still recording!
It swam away very quickly like a shoplifter. After a 5 minute chase, the diver placed his speargun underneath the octopus and it quickly and curiously grabbed hold of the gun as well, giving him enough time to reach in and grab the camera from out of its mouth.
The octopus never attacked the guy, it was just fixated on the shiny metallic blue digital camera.
