Awesome video of this octopus prowling up on an ROV, then getting swooshed away. If you are at all interested in giant octopuses (octopi? octopods?), definitely read the article. It’s short and too cool.
Article here. Video here.

I don’t have quite your level of passion for deep-sea creatures, but I really want a pet octopus. I’ve read stories about them, and I think it would be so neat (if occasionally frustrating) to have such an intelligent pet.
Bradon, as per usual, thinks I’m crazy.

You’d need a big tank for this guy. He’s 80 lbs! I’ve wanted pet turtles over the years, and I saw the most adorable baby cuttlefish at a museum in Houston. Maybe I should start looking into this whole pet idea too. Totally not crazy at all. 😉

Poor guy – he was just checking out the stranger in his neighborhood. I hope he was OK after all that!

Me too! I bet he was though.
