Baby Octopus is Quick to Thank Human Rescuer Before it Swims Back to Sea


This little octopus was dehydrated when it was rescued by a Good Samaritan – so when it eventually recovered from its near death experience, it made sure to say thank you to its human savior.

Four years ago, Pei Yan Hang was wandering along Cyrene Beach in Portugal when it found a beached baby octopus who had become stranded on the sand at high tide.

Without any way of getting back to the ocean, it was starting to dry out when Hang arrived.

Hang grabbed a cup of water, scooped up the cephalopod, and put it back in shallow waters.
