Get your tentacles off my Ikelite! When diver Warren Murray tried to capture a picture of an 8-foot-long giant Pacific octopus off the coast of Carmel, California, it attempted to wrestle his Ikelite system away from Murray in retaliation. The animal eventually swam away after.

Fellow diver David Malvestuto managed to capture the whole interaction on video and you can watch it below.
