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

    Does it have stingers on its tentacles or what?

    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.

    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.

    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?

    Sharks must keep swimming in a steady pattern to breath. It suffocated to death. (hopefully before it got that nasty octopus beak shoved up it`s ass)

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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~ ^^

    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.

    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.
