Giant Octopus 'Hugs' Diver Near Port Hardy

This Huffpost article reports of an encounter between a Canadian biologist and her scuba diving partner and a giant octopus while diving near Port Hardy. The biologist points to the encounter as dispelling the myth that octopuses are monstrous Kraken-like creatures.

They can grow to almost 10 meters (33 feet) from arm tip to arm tip and weigh in at nearly 200 kilograms (441 pounds), they are inquisitive and intelligent.
