But he tricks Tamati by throwing him a gold coin and a shiny pearl, and while both Tamati's hands are full, he snatche...s Aria. To save his sister, Tamati devises a plan to give the octopus eight gifts - one for each of its arms - so that he is forced to let go of Aria to hold them all. With the last gift, though, he tricks the octopus, throwing a snare that wraps around its body, and Tamati, Aria and Mum capture Te Wheke.
