The Walking Octopus Who Thinks He’s a Shellfish

In our opinion, octopuses are by the far one of the most intriguing sea-dwellers out there but sometimes, even the greatest of the greats can suffer a bit of an identity crisis. Now we’re not quite sure whether this cephalopod is suffering from a mid-life crisis and he somehow thinks acquiring a brand-spanking new shell could fill a void or maybe he was raised by a bunch of shellfish and therefore, he thinks he is one too. At this point, we’re just amazed he can walk on his tentacles, let alone carry two big coconut shells.
