Octopus Steals Camera To Take A Few Cephalopod Selfies (VIDEO)

This Giant Pacific octopus got a little hands-y (or arm-y) with a cameraman at Bluefish Cove near Carmel, Calif. Watch as the eight-armed beauty reaches out to grab the camera, and then accidentally captures some cephalopod selfies.

According to National Geographic, these guys are highly intelligent creatures. They can learn to open jars, mimic other octopuses, and have even solved mazes in lab tests.

Who knows, perhaps if this guy had held on to that camera long enough, it could have learned to become a documentary filmmaker.
