SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - An octopus at Bluefish Cove in Carmel apparently does not like the paparazzi.
La Jolla native David Malvestuto -- who now lives in the Bay Area -- and his diving partner Warren Murray were not disappointed in what they found as they came face to face with a giant Pacific octopus in the shallow depths of Bluefish Cove at Point Lobos State Reserve in Carmel.
"It is very rare to see that kind of octopus in the 80 feet of water that we were in," David said.
As Murray, a diving photographer, started to capture the magnificent sighting, his subject matter apparently had other ideas.
"And before you know it, I saw one arm grab him and then the whole body just lunged on to this camera," David said.
There was an underwater tussle that lasted for a few tense moments that David documented on his GoPro camera.
