Octopus Makes A Last-Minute Attempt To Escape Its Tank

Mar 9, 2015
It's the prison break being talked about around the world. While vacationing in Seattle recently, Alex Bracken of Plymouth, Michigan took this footage of a giant Pacific octopus named Ink trying to get out of his tank at the Seattle Aquarium. Since the Internet loves a good prison bust, the video went viral quickly.

In reality, however, this wasn't actually an escape attempt. Octopuses are highly intelligent and inquisitive creatures, and behavior specialists at the zoo agreed that Ink was just exploring the boundaries of his new home. He will be released back into the Puget Sound next year as part of the aquarium's ongoing education and conservation program.
