Curious Octopus Attempts to Snag Entire Underwater SLR Rig from Diver

Sea creatures are out to get your cameras. Don’t believe us? Well the evidence is overwhelmingly in our favor. Sharks, crabs and manta rays have all tried to snatch photography equipment from unsuspecting camera men and women in the past, and this video shows that octopuses (octopi? moosen?) are trying to get in on the action as well.

This particular incident took place in Bluefish Cove in Carmel, CA around Valentine’s Day. While photographing some marine life on the Point Lobos State National Reserve, divers Warren Murray and David Malvestuto almost lost a whole underwater SLR rig to a Pacific octopus who was either curious or very anti-paparazzi.

Watch the video for yourself at the top, and if you want more evidence that animals are evolving into photographers, check out some of our previous animal thief coverage here.
