    From our "WTF" files: Mark Wahlberg is considering taking legal action against bosses of a public aquarium in San Diego, California, after a "giant" captive octopus attacked his young son.

    The actor and his wife Rhea were on family holiday with their four kids, but the trip took a frightening turn at the Sea Life Aquarium in Carlsbad, when an aggressive sea creature latched on to Rhea, their four-year old son Michael and the family's tour guide. Wahlberg recalled the incident during an interview on David Letterman's late night TV show on Thursday.

    He said: "We have a tour guide so she's like, 'You have a special treat today, we'll be able to take you behind the tank and you’ll be able to see the octopus...' So this woman pulls out this gigantic octopus, the thing latches on to my son's arm. It's got my wife, (it's) wrapped completely around the lady, and another guy's just standing there. They can't get this octopus off.

    "My son is freaking out but no sound is coming out of his mouth. So finally we rip the thing off of him. He's got all these suction marks that look like about 30 little hickeys. The lady can't get out, she's yelling for help... He (the aquarium manager) said it's never been that aggressive."

    It was Letterman who urged the actor to take legal action and Wahlberg admitted he just might take the host's advice.

    Should Mark Wahlberg sue?
