Off the coast of Tenerife, in Spain’s Canary Islands, a diver seemed to have made an unusual friend. A little octopus observed the human visitor, and eventually came to latch onto her hand. As if alternating between fear and curiosity, the mollusk made several approaches and retreats, an experience the diver described as a "magic moment."

My theory is that a spearfisher had once given this octopus some of his catch, and thus the octopus came to associate divers with free food. If true, I'd like to see someone try to use this method to domesticate an octopus.

Was waiting for it to latch to the divers face and forcefully inject its offspring to gestate inside the human's body cavity.
