Watch this terrifying octopus almost escape from its aquarium tank

Brace yourself for nightmares.

THE WORLD’S OCTOPUS population is on a roll at the moment. A terrifying roll, but a roll nonetheless.

Allow us to haunt your dreams with this footage of an octopus scaling its tank and very nearly making an escape. There’s much screaming and exclamations of “Oh my God!” as the creature drapes its creepy tentacles over the side of its tank and begins to plan its escape.

Fortunately, a courageous woman steps up and puts it back in its tank. The incident took place in Seattle Aquarium last week.
