Just to give you a taste on how aggressive these "suckers" are, here is a link to a video of an Octo at the Seattle Aquarium.
If you don't have the ability to watch it Ill sum it up for you:

They moved their Octo into another (larger) tank that housed sharks and other large fish, thinking it would be safe. But something strange happened, about once a week they were finding 3-4 foot long, dead sharks on the bottom of the aquarium. So they had an employee stay up one night to film what was taking place. (link below) The film shows the Octo stocking and then attacking/wrestling a large shark. The comment at the end of the clip pretty much sums it up, " Gives new meaning to top predator"

You'll need RealPlayer to watch the video.
