Video shows octopus untying knots, stealing bait

Posted: Updated:

A thief caught on camera stealing fish bait from a researcher studying off the coast of Africa!

Video shows fish swimming around when all of a sudden an octopus swarms around the bait and unties the knots – all while holding a shark at bay!

The octopus then swims away leaving the fish hungry and the researchers with some cool footage.

Scientists have known for years that octopuses are quite smart.

Researchers say they have emotion and individual personalities.
