Of course the octopus won. Where sharks have adapted to just be eaters, octopi have adapted to strong intelligent creatures that camouflage. And as for sharks attacking and killing, not by choice.. they do not even consider humans food.

sharks don`t have to swim in a "steady pattern" to breath they just have to makes sure that they, or the water, is flowing over their guills for them to breath.

Humans kill a lot more sharks each year, for shark fin soup or for the thrill of it or other reasons.
I don`t really feel sorry for the shark because it`s a food chain (hoping it was eaten and not killed because it was a threat) But it was a little scary to watch it struggle like that.
On the other hand, I don`t feel too sorry for the humans that were attacked by them either either. It`s sad and all, but things happen.
Personally I really like sharks~ ^^

Dang!!! That was an awesome video. I`m lucky enough to live by the aquarium they`re talking about :) But the only octopus I saw was the one that opens up jars in 7 seconds or something like that.

the reason people dont get attacked by octopuses is because they live at the bottom way out in the middle of the sea. also xbox8798 if you learnt about sharks then you would realise they arent actually bad.

The plural can be "octopi" since Octopus has its roots in Latin. "Octopuses" is also an acceptable. But anyway, that was awesome. Wonder what would happen if the octopus were up against a much bigger shark. Hmmm...I know what I`m gonna do when I grow up.

lexmex: The narrarator explained towards the end of the video that staff had been finding shark carcasses in the tank for several days and they were undersure of the cause. So someone stayed overnight to observe the tank.

manorrd.....well.....it killed the shark b/c when a shark stops moving it dies...a shark has to stay in constant motion or it will die...so that is how the shark was killed

I`ve been to the Seattle Aquarium and seen that octopus...it`s the same one that would squeeze itself through a 2 by 3 inch opening in its old tank and eat shellfish in other tanks :-D

No, it`s not "octopi", because "octopus" is not Latin. The acceptable plurals are "octopuses" and "octopodes", but "octopodes" is going out of usage.

Correction: Their saliva causes paralysis, so kinda like venome. The don`t inject it into the victim though, i think they just kind of drool into the wound.
And reef sharks, like the one in the vid, have the ablity to pump water over their gills, so they do not need to swim continuosely to survive.

That was a cool video. Never would have guessed that outcome!

Blackmind: Oviously they didn`t know they ate sharks, it even stated that in the video. maybe you should listen? And you`re trying to sound all intelegent by implying you knew they ate sharks but you can`t even spell idiot.

the octopus has venomous saliva? I was only aware of the blue ringed octopus being lethal... Even if it was venomous, it wouldn`t have taken a minute to work and venom can`t be injected through a beak. I think it was more likely suffocation as if sharks stop swimming, they drown. cool movie though... any other predator vs predator movies?

The octopus has a nasty beak at the base of its tentacles, which is uses to pierce skin before injecting its venomous saliva. The reef shark had no chance.

Throughout my youth I was always led to believe that sharks were the badasses of the open sea. I guess it came from watching Jaws and reading of various shark attacks and maulings.

So seeing that, being a shark fan, was disheartening to say the least.

How exactly did the octopus kill the shark? Stangulation? (nooo), Suffocation? (nooo).

Does it have stingers on its tentacles or what?
