Thought octopuses only live in water?  There is one particular species that travels by land on the hunt. The Abdopus aculeatus is adapted to living on land and walsk across it from pool to pool of water in hunt for delicious crabs.   Most of us will never see this in our backyard as it's common through the Philippines and Indonesia. So if anyone goes to visit that region, keep your eyes open for our slimy little friend, grab a video, and post it.

Octopus Escape!    This Octopus was caught in a shrimp trap in Alaska. It had crawled in through a 3-inch opening and terrorized a catch of spot prawns, killing and eating several of them, then attaching itself to the bait jar and  unscrewing the lid for a dessert of prepared shrimp bait pellets! The fishermen considered eating it but decided to let it go out of respect for its intelligence and genius. It was set it on the deck so it could "escape" on it's own.

Nope, It’s Not a Snag. It’s a Really Large Octopus! – [Video] We’ve chronicled lots of big catches made from ocean-going kayaks, and these guys landing a huge octopus is right up there. The guy originally thought he was snagged until it turned out to be a giant octopus – this happens to me all the time when I’m bottom fishing (except it turns out to be an actual snag). #redtunashirts #octopussnag #destinationfishingchartershirts
