    Video: Octopus Attempts to Steal Diver’s Camera

    David Malvestuto and Warren Murray were scuba diving at Bluefish Cove at Point Lobos State Reserve in Carmel, California when they ran into an unlikely species of marine life.

    The two were taking photos and video footage on a GoPro underwater when they came across a Pacific Octopus.

    CBS published a video of what Malvewstuto captured—the octopus attempting to grab Murray’s camera from him.

    “I was a little worried that the octopus wasn’t actually going to come off his camera,” Malvestuto said. “I just wanted to make sure I had it on video. Otherwise the people on land would never believe us.”

    “We didn’t bother it. We didn’t put it in a dangerous situation, so I think it was more or less just curious,” he continued.
