We didn't know octopi could bite!
We thought they only could suction cup onto you, leaving a couple of red circle marks maybe.
We had no idea an octopus could bite you!!
Regardless of whether or not he knew it, Eli Roth found out the hard way that yes, octopi can indeed bite you.
Eli had probably just gotten over his fear of the ocean after a sea urchin sting nearly killed him in Mexico in 2009.
So now, while on a sea scooter expedition in Hawaii, he ran into an angry octopus who bit one of his fingers!
He apparently was bleeding for hours.
It's all healed for the most part and it's currently wrapped up, staying covered literally until it fully heals.
Feel better, Eli!
