An unusual video has emerged from Hawaii of an octopus splashing a visitor from its tank.

In the video, which was filmed at an octopus farm in Kailuna-Kona on July 8, a woman is inspecting a fairly large specimen when it suddenly shoots a jet of water at her.

"I was taking a tour of an octopus farm where there are interactive tanks of octopus you can put your hand in and they will grab you with their tentacles," the filmer wrote online.

"We learned they are intelligent beings and can discern faces of people and if they don't like you or your cell phone they will splash you with their squirt gun which is around the eye," she added.

"No sooner did they tell us that when the octopus I was watching splashed me totally...not just a little squirt but I was soaking wet."
