Man vs. Octopus

They are legendary sea monsters: incredibly strong, insanely flexible, and astonishingly clever. In this fresh look at the beasts even scientists are still trying to understand, a series of contests will separate fact from fiction… and compare the abilities of man versus octopus.

Experts go head-to-head and arm-to-tentacle against the mysterious creatures in tests of strength, camouflage, and flexibility - while researchers probe the uncanny intelligence of a mere mollusc that has nine brains compared to our single one. We also see a former dive champion and octopus wrestler return to visit the Kraken in its liquid home. Who will come out ahead? Man – or octopus?
