Some animals are not meant to be caged.

This octopus clearly felt like it was one of them.

The creature displays plenty of determination and grit while trying to make an escape from its enclosure at the Seattle Aquarium. The octopus captivates the people on hand, who are intrigued and skeeved out all at once.

We salute the eight-legged fella for his resolve, but it was ultimately a poorly-hatched plan. Don't try to escape in front of a roomful of people watching you. The spotlight is already on you, so the odds of a successful jailbreak are longer than this octopus' reach.
