Video: Octopus Walks On Dry Land, Shares Its Treats

As we’ve established once again today, sexism sucks. You know what doesn’t suck? This intrepid octopus that is so intent on sharing its (or, for anthropomorphic purposes, let’s say “her”) crabby snack with everyone that that she has figured out how to walk on dry land using only her eight lovely tentacles. This video may delight or horrify you, depending how you feel about cephalopods, but if it horrifies you, I’m afraid to inform you that you are wrong.

This is even cooler than the octopus table I posted about earlier, because it features a real, live octopus, evolution’s finest triumph in the field of design. Furthermore, this octopus is generous! She wants to share her snacks with you, a human, and will stop at nothing to do so. I think we could all learn from this octopus, whom I have now named Octavia, if only we’d give her a chance to teach us.

Walk on, dear heart. Walk on.
