VIDEO: Escape artist

It may give you the willies, but it sure is cool to watch an octopus — the marine world’s contortionist and escape artist extraordinaire — do the seemingly impossible.

This video shows a rather large octopus on the deck of a boat with small scuppers.

Whoever is filming the action seems to know his octopi because he schools his guests about just what this elusive cephalopodmollusk is about to do.
