You’ve already seen an octopus sprint across a rock and massacre a crab.

Now a brand-new video of an octopus acting crazy has surfaced; it shows the tentacled creature running across the ocean floor while carrying a coconut.

The genius octopus then uses the two halves of the coconut as shelter, crawling inside the coco to shield itself from predators.


The scientist who first spotted this insane coconut-carrying octopus behavior, Dr. Julian Finn, told BBC,

I almost drowned laughing when I saw this the first time. I could tell it was going to do something, but I didn’t expect this—I didn’t expect it would pick up the shell and run away with it.

The question remains: WTF, nature?
