JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A group of divers off the shore of Jacksonville recently met what they're calling "a very curious octopus."

While he was filming, Joe Kistel with ThinkItSinkItReefIt said the octopus darted at his diving partner, grabbing at his hands and hoses before shooting an ink blast and slinking away. Kistel captured the whole exchange on video.

TISIRI's mission is to improve our coastal environments through the efforts of marine habitat creation, conservation, education, and awareness, according to the group's website.
