How do you kill an octopus?
What happens when you bite an octopus? Octopus bites can cause bleeding and swelling in people, but only the venom of the blue-ringed octopus (Hapalochlaena lunulata) is known to be deadly to humans.
What to do if an octopus attaches to you? Pull away quickly. In many cases, a human can escape from the grasp of a small-to-medium sized octopus by just swimming away. Propel yourself forward to create a pulling pressure on the octopus’s arms. If you cannot get away, or if you feel yourself being pulled back, continue to the next step.
