Sneaky Octopus Video

Hey everyone! I am completely new to this, I had no idea so many people were interested in Octopi. I have an issue that's been bugging me for a longtime now. On TV I saw video of an octopus leaving its tank and going into a nearby tank to eat whatever was alive in it. Does anyone know where I can find this on the internet? I've been searching everywhere and it's driving me nuts! I find articles on it, but not the real video. Thanks! I will be in your debt forever.

:welcome: LittleSweet!! Welcome to the wonderful world of cephs!! If I'm thinking of the same clip you are, it's found in the video put out by Nature called "the Octopus Show." It's amazing! The clip they show is an octo moving outside his tank, across the lab to help himself to a fresh crab dinner. This is also the same video which has the clip of the GPO drowning a shark. Another video I can highly recommend is also by Nature called "Incredible Suckers." Both videos should be available from PBS I should think, although I haven't done a search for them. Best o luck to ya mon!! :grin:
