      It was a thrill to have this close encounter. It's the first time we had been up-close to one in the wild.

      It did wrap briefly around my hand - it felt just like one would expect!

      I encountered a few Octopi(?) on a night dive in Cozumel, but it seems you guys got a better view!

      Great picture!

      I just noticed - looks like something got a chunk out of one of the tentacles. See the piece missing in the middle tentacle on the right?

      Kudos to my wife, Stephanie, for taking these shots!
