While we may have amazing relationships with our cats and dogs, it can be hard to predict how our encounters with other kinds of creatures might go. This diver had the amazing luck of being able to swim with a pod of orca whales, but those types of events are few and far between. Whereas we seem to have instant connections with our pets, it might not be like that with, say, an octopus. Just ask the man in the video below. What was supposed to be just a regular picture turned into something I never thought I’d type, because when this man battles an octopus, the results are just ridiculous!
According to the man in the video, he was in Ibiza, an island near Spain, and was just about to return to his boat when he caught an amazing sight.
Right in the harbor, there was an octopus!
He was so excited to see such a rare and awesome creature that he decided to load his GoPro portable camera onto a selfie stick, and dip it underwater to get a video of the octopus.
Now, I’m not sure if these sea creatures don’t enjoy being photographed, or perhaps this particular octopus was just curious, but within seconds of the camera going under, the creature lashed out with a tentacle!
It instantly wrapped its limb around the stick and what commenced was an unexpected tug-of-war between this man and the octopus. It just wouldn’t let go!
Now, if it was me, I would’ve just let it go, but this man wasn’t about to surrender.
He does say in the video how awesome the creature’s strength is, feeling as though it was about to pull him under!
Eventually, he put his camera down, and using two hands, won the stick back from the octopus, but not before the creature gave him one final glare for good measure!
