The ocean is full of amazing creatures. It covers 70% of the world’s surface, and is home to an astonishing variety of creatures. It’s surprising to realize that humans know more about what is in outer space than what lurks in the depths of our oceans. There are millions of species that are yet to be discovered! One of the most striking ocean dwellers has to be the octopus.
Octopus stands out from other marine creatures not only because of their tentacles and strange head, but also due to their abilities. They are said to be one of the most intelligent creatures in the ocean! They can solve complex puzzles in order to get food, and captive octopuses have even been found to tell humans apart and even escape their tank! Now that is something else indeed!
The following video captures one octopus doing something incredible. This footage was taken at Fitzgerald Marine Reserve. Visitors were in for quite a surprise! They had spotted an octopus among some wet leaves. He had a crab in his beak. After he saw the visitors, he slowly made their way towards them and gave the crab to them! It was almost like he gifted it to them!
Experts say that the octopus might have done this intentionally. Isn’t that cool? Now that’s one way to welcome visitors!
