Enchanted, he began following this incredibly shy creature, trying to prove he wasn't a predator by staying very still in her presence. For weeks she evaded him: hiding in her den, camouflaging herself, or pushing her liquid body into the nearest crack to escape.

  5 questions we have after watching episode 6 of 'Lovecraft Country' The sixth installment of HBO's sci-fi drama introduces new characters, and a new side of Tic that we hadn't previously seen.

The incredible tale of a man who formed an unlikely bond with an octopus . In the new Netflix documentary " My Octopus Teacher " this tender moment moves you in a way you never thought an octopus tentacle wrapped around a human hand could.

My Octopus Teacher is a love story, make no mistake -- it might be unconventional, but it's a stirring, often stunning tale of connection. Lots of creatures are clever and full of surprises, obviously, but what separates My Octopus Teacher is emotional intelligence; a real and miraculous bonding that

"If you gain the trust of that animal over a period of months, it will actually ignore you to a certain degree and carry on with its normal life, and allow you to step inside its secret world," Foster tells CNN.

We see her outwitting a shark by hitching a ride on its back, growing a new tentacle after surviving a shark attack, and finally wasting away after laying a clutch of eggs.

"The octopus showed me many behaviors that were completely new to science, because this animal trusted me," he says

The most powerful moment for Foster was when she allowed him to follow her on a hunt.

"It's not like you are in a Jeep and arrive upon a hunting scene on land," he explains. "In the water it's intimate. When she chooses to let you into her world ... it's a very, very special moment of not just being accepted, but that your presence to her also feels natural, like you belong in that space with her."

Foster has spent the last ten years diving in a kelp forest in the Atlantic Ocean off the west coast of South Africa where water temperatures can drop as low as 8 degrees Celsius.

The incredible moment an octopus puffs up like a parachute - and researchers can't decide if it was hunting or just angry. An Australian diver filmed the moment an octopus suddenly puffed up. She thought that the octopus tried to intimidate and scare her way.

A diver in South Africa says he "visited this incredible animal for almost a year." Mr Foster said he developed an amazing relationship with an octopus during the course of his daily dives into what he described as the "golden" underwater kelp forest outside Simon's Town, which lies on the Atlantic side

Known as the "Cape of Storms," he describes this patch of ocean as "the most treacherous coast in the world." While some swimmers fear sharks or other predators, Foster says the greatest threat to his life is being thrown onto a rock by a big wave.

The healing power of the ocean

Foster began this daily diving regimen as a way of dealing with a depression that had left him raw and disconnected. "I was struggling. My only way to heal felt like I needed to be in the ocean, my go-to happy place as a child."

Immersing himself in this underwater world has calmed his mind, he says. Over the years other animals have reached out to make contact, including otters, whales, cuttlefish and even sharks. "They have chosen to come to me and make that contact, showing a moment of trust and vulnerability," he says. "Every time it's breathtaking and healing."

But nothing has compared to his "once-in-a-lifetime" bond with the octopus, he says.

Foster says the greatest lesson she taught him is that humans are part of the natural world around us, and not simply visitors.

"Your own role and place in the natural world is singularly the most precious gift we have been given."

ESPN announcer Mark Jones sends controversial tweet about police ahead of Army game .
Jones will be calling Saturday’s Army-Cincinnati game and said that he doesn’t want any police involvement/police escort for the game. He says he fears he will be shot by an officer over his skin color and doesn’t want to sign his “own death certificate.” He questioned the police’s ability to protect him. Saturday at my football game I’ll tell the police officer on duty to “protect” me he can just take the day off. Fr. I’d rather not have the officer shoot me because he feared for his life because of my black skin or other dumb ish.
