I don't kill octopus anymore, this one was made into very fine octopus cakes (just like fish or crab cakes). App 25-30 lbs, was off Masterman Island near Port Hardy, BC, Canada. You'll see that it was busy eating another PGO, possibly a larger one by the size of the suckers. This is actually quite common, if a large octopus encounters a smaller octopus (or weaker), it may take that animal for food. When i used to commercial dive it was common to find octopus close together, either mating behaviour or predatory. I have seen 3 X 50 pounders on the same boulder, with one to the side while the other two are battling or mating.
