This quick and informative collection of Tumblr posts shines some light on the fascinating, slimy, intellectual behemoths that are the octopuses of this world. Basically, you better be ready for some eerie and deeply unsettling trickery if you're going to be a security guard at an aquarium that houses octopuses.

Tiny Octopus Finds a New Home With Help From a Friendly Diver

Divers had planned to spend their time under the water collecting shells. But when they happened upon a small coconut octopus using a disposable plastic cup as a shelter, they knew they had to act. This species has a predisposition from birth to seek shelter, which is often a coconut or seashell. Though the shell it found is good protection, the cup is dangerous, both for the octopus, and any predator that might try to eat it, and would most likely ingest the plastic as well.

The issue with finding a "new home" for the octopus, is that coconut octopi are extremely picky about the shells they choose for themselves, so the octopus in the video rejected a number of shells that it was offered, before finding one to its liking. 

This is a relatively harmless case, but human waste kills sea creatures by the millions every year. Next time you go to the beach, be a little less lazy. Grab some reusable cups. Try to make sure there are less creatures like these using our waste thinking it is a part of their environment.

An octopus recently tried and failed to make a break for it at the Seattle Aquarium.

The 8-legged beast climbed up his tank and nearly made it over the edge before a member of the staff thwarted his plans.

He was probably just hungry and headed for the crab tank. Or he was jealous of some his cellmates who were recently granted their freedom.

A few weeks ago, the aquarium successfully mated Franklin and Hazel who met on an octopus “blind date” before releasing them back into the wild.

Here’s video footage of the two being set free below a pier.

Porsche Indrisie was watching a little crab just chill out on the rocks in Yallingup, Australia when terror struck.

An octopus shot out of the water and quickly dragged the creature beneath the surface.

Indrisie captured the entire moment on video, and you can hear her screams of horror as she witnessed the attack.

Who knew these 8-legged beasts could move so fast? Even sharks are no match for them.

Be afraid, be very afraid.
