My octopus teacher

Pre text. I'm an old spearo on this forum. I don't have a cpu now. Just a phone and the search feature doesn't work well. If someone has already posted on this subject, please re thread me. Otherwise if anyone has seen the said title of my thread from Netflix... What do you think? I am a consumptive diver and will still do what I do, but if this film, is not staged, pretty amazing footage. What do you think?

Re: My octopus teacher

I like to bite them in the face and then eat them. Netflix didn’t change a thing.

Re: My octopus teacher

My wife and I really enjoyed the documentary. Amazing how the octopus came to trust him.

Re: My octopus teacher

Had a buddy recommend this to me last Fall. It is a really enjoyable film and provides some great under water footage. Cheers, Kadman
