Octopuses have been filmed taking night-time strolls out of the water and onto the shore on the coast of Ceredigion in Wales, UK.
More than 20 of the brainy cephalopods were spotted crawling out of the water after 10pm on Friday, when a local tour company manager and a group returned from a sunset trip.
“They were coming out of the water and crawling up the beach. We don’t quite know what’s causing it,” Brett Jones, owner of dolphin tour company SeaMôr Dolphin Watching Boat Trips, told Wales Online.
“Perhaps it’s because the sea has been quite rough recently, but I’ve never seen anything like it before. They were walking on the tips of their legs.”
He said a friend told him they’d been doing it on Thursday night, too.
