Some Octopi are Real Camera Hams and some like to Mug the Cameraman

Octopus Nabs Diver's Camera

The Sun has a neat story, complete with video of an octopus grabbing a diver's camera and taking off with it while its still recording. The diver manages to get it back undamaged, but that's got to be a tense moment as you feel your camera ripped from your grasp and heading off into the blue.

The larceny rate among New Zealand Octopi is now an item of concern for divers, and leaving valuables within their reach is highly ill-advised.

Hat tip to Lagniappe's Keeper.
