Meet ‘Rambo’—the ‘world’s first’ octopus photographer, or ‘octographer’.

Rambo resides in New Zealand’s Sea Life Aquarium, where it was taught to take photos of visitors from inside her tank.

According to PetaPixel, Rambo was given a water-resistant Sony TX30 compact camera to take pictures with—using her tentacles to press a red shutter button extension to capture portraits of visitors as they posed for shots.
