Angry Octopus Tries to Intimidate Diver Interrupting Its Morning Walk

Scuba diver PT Hirschfield found herself in a face off with a large octopus while on a dive near Melbourne, Victoria, on January 31.The octopus did not appear to appreciate having its morning routine interrupted and put on a series of displays to try and scare away Hirschfield before making its escape. “It confronted me, repeatedly blowing its body up like a parachute to intimidate me with its increased size. When I was not deterred, it headed straight for me, trying to knock me out of the way like a bowling ball,” said Hirschfield. “Octopuses are extremely intelligent creatures and this one was using its most creative methods of self defence against a possible threat (even though an octopus loving mermaid like me is really no threat at all).” Credit: Pink Tank Scuba via Storyful
