Can't tell if it's mating or cannabalism (but thats akward, I've seen the vid before but I don't exactly remember what the film was called).:hmm:

In the case of octopuses, size DOES make a difference. If it was cannabalism you would not even see the little one. There was a post sometime ago where the photo questioned if the little male was confused but I suspect the male is simply much smaller than the female in this species.
