When the Sea Life Awauarium in New Zealand decided to teach an octopus called Rambo how to take pictures, it only took her three attempts to figure it out. 

“When we first tried to get her to take a photo, it only took three attempts for her to understand the process,” said one of the trainiers. “That’s faster than a dog. Actually it’s faster than a human in some instances.”

An octopus recently tried and failed to make a break for it at the Seattle Aquarium.

The 8-legged beast climbed up his tank and nearly made it over the edge before a member of the staff thwarted his plans.

He was probably just hungry and headed for the crab tank. Or he was jealous of some his cellmates who were recently granted their freedom.

A few weeks ago, the aquarium successfully mated Franklin and Hazel who met on an octopus “blind date” before releasing them back into the wild.

Here’s video footage of the two being set free below a pier.

Porsche Indrisie was watching a little crab just chill out on the rocks in Yallingup, Australia when terror struck.

An octopus shot out of the water and quickly dragged the creature beneath the surface.

Indrisie captured the entire moment on video, and you can hear her screams of horror as she witnessed the attack.

Who knew these 8-legged beasts could move so fast? Even sharks are no match for them.

Be afraid, be very afraid.
