Octopuses Punch Fish

Octopuses are full of surprises. Here is a BBC film (47s) of them punching fish in the Red Sea (also observed elsewhere). They do hunt prey together so another. 

Who knows (yet) what it means but scientists have said "it could be out of spite" or "of keeping the fish in line."

With eight "fists" it is hard to call the punch. Circular jab? Naw! has to be a roundhouse.
