Octopuses are absolutely hilarious, what with their penchant for puzzle-solving and infinitely useful tentacles. Just check out this video by Lauren De Vos of the University of Cape Town's Marine Research Institute — while filming a bait canister in Cape Town's False Bay, a thieving octopus managed to undo the humans' cable ties and wrangle with a pajama catshark (which is actually a dogfish) as if it were no big deal. Behold the secret slapstick comedy of the natural world above — you'll be glad you did.
