The incredible footage below shows a giant Pacific octopus successfully attacking an unsuspecting spiny dogfish shark.

Octopuses are generally prey to these sharks, but life in this tank was a little different.

This octopus had been sharing an aquarium with several spiny dogfish sharks until staff realized that the fish kept turning up dead at the bottom of the tank. To understand what was happening, they decided to film an interaction.

To the staff’s astonishment, they witnessed the octopus turning the tables and attacking and killing the dogfish shark.

From then on, it was decided that the sharks would enjoy life in a different tank entirely.
