    That looks like the thing I blew out of my nose this morning. Excapt mine didn’t move. Wait a minute…

    Until it can climb over the Rockie Mountains, crawl, slither or whatever, through the snow, survive an Alberta winter, and then defeat the ferocious guard cat my daughter calls Fluffy, I’m not gonna worry (much).

    How fast can it move across land?

    What should I do if I encounter such a beastie out of water? I worry that it would be easy prey on the beach.

    Just a note, the two video recommendations shown at the end of the video were about eating baby octupusses. I think that pretty easily debunks all this invasion nonsense – we are after all at the top of the food chain.

    Yes we are at the top of the food chain, but we’re not alone. Polar bears, tigers, sharks and mosquitoes all consider us food sources.

    I watched the video and was all squeee its so cute! Then I stupidly clicked on the related Octopus and soy sauce video that came up after the OP video ended. Arrgh! It adds a whole new unwanted dimension to the phrase “Don’t play with your food”.
    *shudder*

    Ghost of Steve Irwin: “Crikey! he’ll latch on with his tentacles, slam down with the beak and you’ll bleed out in seconds! . . . “

    My first thought was “That’s exactly what people tend to do just as the tetrodotoxin kicks in”. The beauty of it is that the neurotoxic properties mean you don’t even feel the bite.

    Sure, but we are hard at work fixing 3 of those problems.
