Octopus Thanks A Family That Saved It In A Fascinating Way

Despite its weird looks, octopus is actually a pretty cool animal.

Octopus, despite it’s out of this world eldritch appearance, is actually a clever animal. Even scientists proved its emotional capacity from their recent studies. Peter Godfrey-Smith, a distinguished professor of Philosophy at the City University of New York Graduate Center, stated that these magnificent animals are the closest thing that we will come to meeting an intelligent alien.

Godfrey-Smith mentioned in his published piece The Mind of an Octopus that these strange creatures can recognize human faces and can distinguish one human from another even while wearing the same uniform. Furthermore, they can also play with items and are certified escape masters.

After saving a stranded octopus on a beach, a family discovered its fascinating intelligence on a firsthand account.

The family shared their amazing experience with an octopus through a video they uploaded on YouTube. In the caption of the footage, they stated:

We spent our Holidays at the Red Sea while walking along a lonely beach we saw a stranded octopus in the sand. We were not sure if he is already dead. So we pushed him back into the water.

When they saved the poor animal, they thought that it would be the end of it.

The caption reads:

He needed some minutes to recover, then he swam away. Next day we went to the same beach for a walk, while walking along the beach we saw a shadow in the water coming very quickly to us. It was our octopus we rescued yesterday! He recognized us!

They said that the octopus stayed with them for one hour, and wanted to touch them all the time.

The post added:

He accompanied with us a long time while we walked along the beach, all the time tried to touch our feet, we are sure that this Octopus came back to thank us for saving his life. It’s amazing how intelligent animals are.

They named the friendly octopus Kurt.

Because of the fascinating experience, they stated that they will never eat octopus again.

Amazing isn’t it? You can watch the whole video below.

Meet the World’s Ugliest Bird — the Scary-Looking Marabou Stork!

It’s really quite unfortunate that the Marabou Stork has always been judged because of its heart-stopping appearance.

Looks are not everything and they can be deceiving. However, appearances are often the basis of first impressions. That said, the Marabou Stork makes quite an impression. To say that it's NOT cute would be quite an understatement. The bird is almost always judged for its frightening appearance.

The Marabou Stork has become notorious for its looks. It has earned the dubious distinction of being the world's ugliest bird. In fact, some people say that the bird "looks like the vampire Nosferatu" or an elderly person suffering from a disfiguring disease. Those descriptions are cruel — but we can easily see where those people are coming from.

This formidable bird can grow up to 5 feet tall.

132-Year Old Lobster Set Free in the Ocean After Living in a Fish Tank for 2 Decades!

His owner finally “pardoned” him and released him back to the water to live out his days as a free man, I mean, crustacean.

You hear about prisoners earning their dues, getting pardoned, and then released from jail after exhibiting good behavior and all that jazz? Well, this was what this ancient lobster must have felt like when, after spending 2 decades in a fish tank, his "owner" finally "pardoned" him and released him back to the water to live out his days as a free man, I mean, crustacean.

Louie the Lobster has been one of the attractions at Peter's Clam Bar on Long Island. A fish tank served as his home for 20 years; he has become such a fixture in there that the owner Butch Yamali considered him more as a pet than the next item on the menu. Butch inherited Louie when he purchased the restaurant years ago - the lobster was part of the package.

Well, Butch loved Louie so much that he refused a customer that offered $1000 to have the lobster cooked for Father's Day.
