Video of the Week #19, November 30th, 2011

From: Land-Walking Octopus Explained by Katherine Harmon at Octopus Chronicles.

Original source: Fitzgerald Marine Reserve

This week s pick is raw footage of an octopus laboriously lugging itself over a tidal area. This phenomenon isn t entirely uncommon; however, since octopusses are nocturnal we rarely get to see it in such wonderful detail. The terrestrial travels of this Cephalopod are a far cry from its grace and stealth under the water the video is a must see!
