    Haha... love the octopus. Is he sure it isn't stuck on his spear at the end though?

    Hmmm....and what's our hero Victor Huang doing out with a speargun? So he can kill as marvellous a creature as the one he was filming?

    I'd like to take Victor for a ride on his own speargun too.

    ? As far as I know most divers take spear guns as protection, they aren't solely used to hunt and kill.

    Some divers dive with a knife in case of any entanglement, but not a speargun!

    Yep, he obviously goes out just killing all the sea life willy nilly, he's like a subaqua version of Pol Pot

    I would imagine a speargun is probably handier if you're in waters where there are sharks etc (you can poke much better with a speargun than with a knife, even if you don't intend to fire it).

    A knife isn't much good at trying to keep a shark away from you, without risking a hand ;)


    Nice video :)
    Octopusses seem to be quite inquisitive creatures from what I've seen/heard :)

    Fair enough :) but as Werewolf says, they are used as protection against bigger things.

    Most divers take a knife with them and it's mainly used incase of entanglements,not for protection against sharks

    not many divers use a speargun, it could be used for protection but I don't think that is their main use ;)
