Our staff at our Mahatta West farm in Quatsino rescued an eagle that had bitten off more than it could chew when it tried to catch an octopus. They are used to seeing the wonders of nature around them on a regular basis, but they knew that this was a once in a lifetime experience.

The octopus is about the closest thing we have that could be called an alien. They are amazing creature. Even the design of their eyes are 10 fold better than ours. They are an incredibly intelligent animal, probably with superhuman visual acuity due to their visual cortex comprising a huge percentage of the brain. This makes it all more computationally intensive than our own, hence why they are also extremely intelligent.

Well, there's a video I never expected to see! Amazing!!
The Bald Eagle is generally considered an apex predator, but I guess this one met its match!!
I'm really surprised the eagle couldn't cut it to pieces with its beak and talons, but octopuses are pretty clever creatures I guess.

I once saw an octopus eating a live 25 pound grouper, but this beats all. I would love to see how it came about.
