Because under the sea is the place to be if you’re freaky deaky, this is a video of photographer and Andrea Humphreys getting hugged and kissed by a giant Pacific octopus while exploring the Campbell River in Vancouver, British Columbia. In her own words, which yes, do involve suckers on

Because Mother Nature is like, the queen of playing games, this is a video of a young rescue dolphin named Helen teasing a seagull (with a heart shaped lens flare on its head OMG we’ll call him Cupid!) with a fish it was given by repeatedly spitting it into the
These are several videos of oil rig worker Hector Zert tossing leftover food into the water and watching the feeding frenzy fish balls that ensue. The fish just bee-line it straight towards the food and start swarming. Pretty sure I saw some sharks getting in on the action too. I
