CHARLESTON, SC (South Carolina Aquarium/CNN) - With Halloween just days away, the South Carolina Aquarium held an unusual pumpkin carving contest - underwater.

A team of five volunteer divers plunged into a tank at the aquarium to carve sea-themed designs into pumpkins.

With thunderous clapping, the audience showed love for its favorite design.

This year's winner was the octopus. The tank's residents seemed to agree.
