SCUBA diving veteran James McGauhey has shared with us some of his amazing video clips which feature his encounters with cephalopds. Here is the first video, with the description in his own words: "Here's a short video of an octopus encounter I had last year. The octo was very large and after I got close taking video, it was wrapping tentacles around me, but nothing threatening. Then it just moved over, on top of my entire video system, lights and all, and took the entire system from me. The video was rolling and lights were on, but sometimes it pressed against the lens so it was all black. I thought after it discovered it couldn't mate with it, or eat it, it would give it back. No such luck. I was running out of bottom time on the dive, so I finally started peeling him off the system and got it back." Watch the video in our Video Gallery Thanks James!
