Octopus steals scuba diver’s camera to shoot selfie video

An octopus off the coast of Australia stole a scuba driver’s camera and snapped a short selfie video before the diver got his camera back. The footage captured last year by a diver in Sydney Harbour has only recently surfaced online.

The diver, who posted the video online, said he was scuba diving in Sydney Harbor when he decided to set down his action camera so he could film himself in front of an octopus’ lair.

The video shows the octopus snatch up the camera and pull it into the lair, taking a short selfie video. The driver even had to fight with the octopus to snatch his camera. As the creature was pulling the camera back, it briefly snapped the perfect selfie.
