This incredible video was shared on TONMO’s bulletin board. An octopus labors great distances out of the water towards human onlookers and leaves a crab at the onlookers’ feet before returning back to his salty pond.  Is this an octopus offering a tribute or simply a confused cephalopod high-tailing it out of there when he realized he was heading towards people?
