A Reticent Octopus Swims Away With a GoPro Camera Snatched From an Intrepid Diver

Octopus Grabs GoPro

While diving in the waters off of Nice, France, an intrepid photographer was awestruck by the sight of a camouflaged octopus and tried to capture the moment with his GoPro camera. Unfortunately for him, the reticent cephalopod appeared to prefer he didn’t and grabbed the offending device with powerful suckers and swam off, leaving the diver with only a broken camera stick.

I was swimming not far from Nice and I saw an octopus. I tried to film it but the octopus grabbed my GoPro, broke my stick and escaped.
