This Octopus Species in Northern Australia Can Hunt on Dry Land
Most octopuses live in the ocean—but in northern Australia, a small, shallow-water species takes to land in search of food. Abdopus aculeatus is the only octopus that’s specially adapted to walk on dry ground. Using its long, sucker-lined arms, the slimy sea creature pulls itself along the shoreline as it searches tide pools for crabs.
Witness Abdopus aculeatus in action by watching BBC Earth’s video below.
