Octopus Walking!?

Yesterday we got out to Cove 2, intent on surveying for biodiversity shift and seastar wasting disease.  It was our hope to document the baby green urchins that have become more common since the outbreak of Sea Star Wasting syndrome.

Shortly after descent we were lucky enough to meet a Giant Pacific Octopus on walkabout (likely out hunting) and were able to shadow it for nearly 40 min as it walked across the whole length of Cove 2 to a den under the Honey Bear 🙂

Here is a quick ‘highlight’ video, enjoy!
