An amazing video has emerged of an octopus carrying a coconut as it walks on the bottom of the ocean in Lembeh, Indonesia.
The footage, shot by a diver in April, shows the small octopus carrying two halves of a coconut in its 'arms' and using its other tentacles like legs to walk along the ocean floor.
The Amphioctopus marginatus species is best know as the 'coconut octopus' because of its habit of using coconuts and shells to protect itself.
The filmer later discussed the encounter online, saying: "I've also seen some jump out the sand with their coconut and hide in them before the let the stream take them away". ---
