Octopuses, it is generally agreed, are the sneakiest, awesomest animals that exist. They have magical camouflaging abilities and can squeeze through teeny little holes. The latest octopus rascality: stealing a scuba diver's video camera and shooting an undersea home movie.
In this case, the inspired cephalopod borrowed the camera from New Zealand scuba diver Victor Huang, joining the likes of Kevin Smith and Quentin Tarantino as filmmakers who learned the craft just from watching some movies on their own.
The octopus's film is becoming something of a YouTube sensation, and, as is the case with many directors, the fame has given him something of a big head. [Animals Don't Think]
