An Amazing Octopus That Walks on Land to Search for Food Whenever the Tide Gets Too Low

Octopus on Land

No one is safe when this octopus is around

In a fascinating episode of the BBC Earth series The Hunt, narrator Sir David Attenborough marvels at an amazing Australian octopus who lives in water, but is able to hunt for food on land whenever the tide gets too low or the when pickings in the sea are slim.

This extraordinary species found in Northern Australia is like no other Octopus, and land is no obstacle when hunting for Crabs.
