Octopi: They're just too darned smart, and they're sick and tired of this captivity crap.
Earlier this week a wily octopus impressed Reddit by grabbing a camera and turning it on some scientists. And if that wasn't freaky enough, in February, someone documented an octopus lunging out of water attack a crab.
Now, footage taken at the Seattle Aquarium on Feb. 26 catches another octopus in an act of armed resistance -- eight-armed resistance, to be exact.
In video posted to LiveLeak Wednesday, the serious cephalopod scales the wall of its enclosure. Visitors marvel at the mollusk's feat, but a few people just can't handle it when it whips a tentacle or two over the top. Someone -- it's not clear if its aquarium staff -- is then forced to literally handle the situation, tossing the tentacle back in bounds.
Animal Uprising: Brace yourself, human.
