Watch As An Octopus Beats Up A Shark And Steal A Can Of Food

Even though it might not seem like it octopuses are very smart marine animals as they have been known to escape from supposedly escape proof aquariums and fit into space that would seem impossible given their size. They are also known for being very inquisitive and able to work though problems in order to get food, much like in this video.

The video, which was shot by Lauren De Vos of the University of Cape Town’s Marine Research Institute captures one such octopus that decided it wanted the bait¬†canister and no-one, including a pajama catshark was going to stop him.

About the Author

Steven has been around the tech world long enough to see most of the stuff we think of cool happen before which leads to a certain bit of cynicism that has contributed to him being known as the cranky old fart of the Internet. Besides sharing some of the goodness that he finds with you here at 42x you can also find him curating some digital goodness at Winextra (tech type stuff) and Rotten Gumdrops (for your daily dose of WTF).
