    I’ll show you my gratitude by letting Cthulhu hear of this, you’ll be rewarded

    Octopuses are so fucking smart. I’d like to believe this guy is actually thanking his savior

    I had a similar experience when I was younger, my sister found an octopus on the beach being attacked by gulls and when we placed it in a rock-pool to wait on the tide coming back in it started displaying the most beautiful patterns.
    I wonder why they do this.

    wow I was surprised by how much he expanded!

    Oh, shit. This is a cool fucking video.
    Definitely feels like he is connected to one who saved him for sure.
    “Thank you, my son. You have saved me from damnation. I shall return the favor when the time is right.”

    Real badass.

    Hoooooly crap, look at him change colors at the end, when he wraps a tentacle around his savior’s shoe. Communicating via changing colors and other ‘skin’ signals is extremely common in cephalopods. OCTOPUS IS LEGIT TRYING TO SAY SOMETHING.

    (Presumably: “I will tell the Deep Ones of this, and they will spare you when we rise.”)

    Full disclosure, I’m just copying a link from when this was posted in r/HumansBeingBros:

    [ā€œBut now, increasingly, researchers who study octopuses are convinced that these boneless, alien animalsā€”creatures whose ancestors diverged from the lineage that would lead to ours roughly 500 to 700 million years agoā€”have developed intelligence, emotions, and individual personalities.ā€](http://freakonomics.com/2011/11/07/how-smart-is-the-octopus/)

    Ah yes… the foot touch. A deep tradition of our people when thanking humans. You should be honored.

    I read somewhere that Octopi are have basic sentience. That one probably was thanking him!

    I think the octopus is missing an arm!

    Considering how smart these little dudes are I do believe he knows he was rescued by another being and is grateful. Liiiiit šŸ”„

    Serious question: How would I recognise a live octopus that was washed up on a beach? Do you just scoop the lifeless blob, put it back in the water, and hope for the best?

    Meanwhile, a squid would tell his rescuer to fuck off

    “CTHULHU SMILES UPON YOU, FRIEND OF THE VOID… YOUR LIFE SHALL BE SPARED IN THE COMING MARCH OF INSANITY.” -the octopus, probably

    That would hit you right in the feels if that happened in real life. Hit me in the feels just watching it, I cannot imagine witnessing that live.

    It seems to surprise people that there’s a solid case that the second most intelligent animal on Earth is the octopus.

    The have been observed [using tools](https://blogs.scientificamerican.com/observations/a-tool-wielding-octopus-this-invertebrate-builds-armor-from-coconut-halves/), they [problem solve at a very complex level](http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0152048), they require play/mental stimulation or they [become distressed](http://www.bbc.com/news/av/business-23708753/how-to-play-with-an-intelligent-octopus)…

    We consider animals like dogs and chimpanzees intelligent. But in recent years, we’ve been able to study octopus in detail like we never could before, and we’re seeing the octopus outperform those animals in tests of intelligence. And we’re just scraping the surface of how they communicate.

    I think if we ever hope to communicate with alien life, we’ll have learned how by figuring out how to communicate with the octopus.

    Octopi are so intelligent. You could seal one in a jar, and it would suckered onto the lid and unscrew it from the inside.

    Octopus biologist here!

    Stop anthropomorphizing octopodes. They do this as a way of tagging humans for their future consumption. These guys are smart — Watch your back, OP.

    Makes me think of that scene in arrival where alians touch the wall with humans

    maybe the suicidal octopus had beached itself on porpoise.

    “you didn’t save my life, you *ruined* my death.”

    I am going to believe this octopus is actually touching this persons foot as a gesture of thanks. Do not tell me otherwise.

    when you see things like this, it almost makes you cringe when people eat them.

    Seeing how smart octopi are made me stop eating them. This is a reminder of how my slight inconvenience is more than worth it. Thanks for posting. Nice to think that we are all connected this way.

    this is such a beautiful and touching moment. octopuses/octopi/octopodes are *so fucking smart* and such incredible animals. i’ve always loved them and a couple of years back i think it was the history or discovery channel had an excellent 2 hour doc on them. they learn from watching, they have short and long term memory (one octopus went through a maze once, slowly. second time flew right through it cause he knew where to go), build gardens and homes and they are also playful.

    that lil guy without a doubt knew that man saved his life.

    That is bizarre.

    July 18, 2017 at 3:34 pm

    Just imagine that they actually have feelings and understand how to be gracious. Jesus, that’s crazy.

    Still doesn’t change that it tastes good though.

    More like septopus, right?

    Stuff like this is why I can’t eat animals any more.

    Still essentially beached octopus touches a foreign object in his environment.
