Octopus tries to grab diver's 'octopus'

An octopus – the eight-legged kind – approached a diver and tried to grab his octopus – the alternate air source kind... and the diver's buddy caught it all on video

Joe Kistel, an underwater videographer for the reef-conservation nonprofit TISIRI, was diving off the coast of Jacksonville, Florida, when he spotted an octopus under the reef. The curious octopus left its den, approached Joe and his buddy, and seemed intrigued by the divers' hands and hoses.
