In this video, an octopus acts like it owns the place. What place? Every place. Water, land. What’s next? Air. Flying octopuses. It’s 2012, people.

Julia Finn, a senior curator of marine invertebrates at the Museum Victoria in Australia, says, “Crawling along out of water is not uncommon for species of octopus that live in the intertidal or near shore.”

James Wood, a marine biologist, is familiar with the phenomenon. According to a blog post on Scientific American, however, he thinks we humans are less likely to see these things happening because most species of octopuses are nocturnal.

That’s not very reassuring, James.
