A man rescued a stranded octopus at Cyrene Reef in Singapore and the grateful mollusc thanked him for his kindness.

 After recovering, the little octopus moved towards its rescuer and placed one of its tentacles on him for some time before swimming away.

"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. He needed some minutes to recover, then he swam away.

We are sure that this Octopus came back to thank us for saving his life. It's amazing how intelligent animals are." said octopus rescuer.

Found worldwide in the shallow waters of tropical, subtropical, and temperate areas, the common octopus is a fascinating creature.

Octopus arms have a mind of their own. Two-thirds of an octopus’ neurons reside in its arms, not its head.

Octopuses have blue blood. To survive in the deep ocean, octopuses evolved a copper rather than iron-based blood called hemocyanin, which turns its blood blue.
