First underwater video shot by an octopus

Last updated: October 25, 2017 at 16:21 pm

Victor Huang was filming an octopus when it suddenly snatched his camera from his hands and swam away with the unit still recording. After a 5-minute chase, Mr. Huang was able to distract the octopus with his speargun and he recovered his camera. The unusual event took place while he was freediving at the Wahine Memorial off Wellington, New Zealand in April 2010.
