Japanese Live Octopus Wrestling… and biting

Posted on March 3, 2007

I have to say that this was even a little weird for us. Apparently wrestling a live octopus involves biting it?

Sun Tzu has spent about 7 years in Asia traveling through Japan, Hong Kong, China, and Korea. A true fan of everything that is weird and strange, he decides in the end what is displayed and published on this site. Sun has previous experience writing for numerous print mags such as XLR8R, URB, and Movement Magazine.

    lol they’re saying that you have to bite that certain place in order to weaken its nervous system, which will get the octopus to loosen its victim. XD

    I think it should be noted they are venomous and have a very nasty bite.
    The species shown likely isn’t fatal to humans but still you wouldn’t want to get bit as they have a beak much like a parrot.
    Also the others didn’t help him this has to be some crazy game show I cannot see a profession aquarium exhibit being ran that way.
    They would have had three people all waring heavy gloves handling that thing.

    Nice… i couldn’t figure out why he was in the aquarium and a second later outside. I think it’s supposed to be like “several hours later”. It’s like the guy is waking up in the morning with an octopus all over him and he is asking himself “God,i was drunk or what?!”
