National Geographic - Octopus Defeats Shark

This footage, courtesy of youtube and National Geographic, shows what happens when you put a Giant Pacific Octopus and a shark in the same tank. The octopus actually captures and kills the dogfish shark.

The aquarium staff put up a camera to determine exactly how dogfish shark carcuses had been turning up at the bottom of the aquarium. That an octopus was responsible came as quite a surprise.
