Similar to that of a zombie scene, a beach in Wales is crawling with slimy Octopus coming up out of the ocean’s waves, walking on the tips of their legs. Around twenty of these sea creatures were spotted on dry land in New Quay, Wales, with much more spotted the previous night.
Owner of SeaMor Dolphin Watching Boat Trips Brett Stones caught this phenomenon on camera, taking videos and pictures, some of the creatures already dead. “Perhaps it’s because the sea has been quite rough recently but I’ve never seen anything like it before,” Stones exclaimed as he let the eerie sight sink in and helped some of them back into the water.
Wright also explained the possibilities of the octopus sustaining injuries from the rough weather or a change in atmospheric pressure affecting the creatures’ behaviors.
Whatever the cause, this was a rare and special opportunity to see these ocean dwellers up close and personal, their underwater-like movements making the octopus look as if it were moving in slow motion up on dry land.
