Top 10 TERRIFYING Facts About OCTOPUSES



In his 1896 short story The Sea Raiders, HG Wells describes a world where sentient octopuses and squid patrol the coast of Devon, England, feasting on human flesh. It’s one of the sci-fi master’s sillier stories. After all, how scary can a sea-based villain made of squishy stuff be?

    Before the grammar Nazis hit us for the wrong use of Octopuses, please watch this video.

    Please tell me you're joking when you explain the reasons on why we should be scared of them.

  3. Kyng Kraken September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    Rise and take hold of our 🌊 do they fear death 💀 🦑

  4. Zinkster September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    Actually Octopi (it rolls off the tongue better for me) can only fit through spaces smaller than the beak as it is the only hard part of their body

  5. Alondra Hernandez September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    I like eating fish and seaweed am I an octopus

  6. GoodFebruarian September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    Kyaaa~

  7. Elizabeth Salvatore September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    kudos! Very interesting video, told in a very unique way Thoroughly enjoyed the video. More than ready for the Octopus uprising.

  8. h35319 September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    He keeps saying octupuses I don't know if it was a joke or not.

  9. Doge Plays September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    Actually, it's not tentacles. The correct name is actually "arms". Octopuses do not have Tentacles, only Giant Squid do.

  10. Kelvin Tang September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    I love Octopuses 🐙

  11. Sonya Coghill September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    Octopuses do not have bones you sleep scientist my mum told me that and so do my dad I know something👾👾👾

  12. Apples September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    When referring to multiple species or types of the same animal, it would be "octopi". As in, 'The Caribbean is home to many closely related octopi'.

    When referring to the animals themselves, it is 'octopuses', or simply 'octopus' (both singular and plural). As in, "That's a lot of octopuses!" or "The octopus are mating around this time of year".

  13. Mito Producer September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    Please don't make octopuses the same way Hollywood has made a false image about sharks.

  14. madelein badenhorst September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    Lol rly enjoyed this video. Ty 4 sharing

  15. Alyssa Romero September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    It's the super strength that scares me everything else is whatever 💀💀

  16. Hang Nguyen September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    Anything more capable is a threat to humanity. Why.

  17. offdaheez September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    why did you censor 'Cthulhu- like form' to just 'form'

  18. gamatronXX September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    what happens if they use the squids technology!?

  19. Cornelis Ekstedt September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    don`t worry we just have to get the splatoon kids

  20. Daggerman105 - September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    Cthulhu will bestow Octopi with legs and lungs.

  21. John Milos September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    The narrator worries me more.

  22. Brett Karst September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    These animals are wonderful…. They are only protecting themselves when hostile.

  23. stacy franz September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    Very weird replies. The point is this thing shows high intelligence. I use to think why pay 30,000.00 a yr for someone to observe these things. Like the giant squid that they couldn't find, but many seamen told tales. They seem to have unbelievable super powers that we dont. I do wonder if they arent in the trees watching…..lol

  24. Balogun Olufemi September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    i think comedy was the point of the ''UPRISING'' part, but it's informative overall.

  25. Hotdog Coolcat September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    Even I may be an octopus…………. You sir just blew my myyynd

  26. Thomas Grabau September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    What if this guy is an octopus that is secretly against the uprising. Trust no none 🙂

  27. Michael Kirton September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

  30. 12inchRules September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    This is just fear mongering. Its an animal and you should respect an animal.

  31. The Queen of Baka's September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

  35. josh bull September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am

    I hear they have been secretly working on hydrogen bombs, we received credible intel from a snapple cap fact, thus we have to invade first before they strike and stop them!

  39. shaolintiger88 September 25, 2017 at 3:50 am
