An Actual Octopuses Garden in the shade…A team of scientists operating a remotely-operated submersible 2 miles deep & 80 miles off the coast of Monterey, California discovered a thousand female octopuses attached to rocks! 99% of them were in a brood-basket position formed by the females arms and web to protect her clutch of eggs (less than 200 eggs for this species) ⁣

“This has never been discovered on the West Coast of the US, never in our sanctuary and never in the world with these numbers,” Chad King, a lead scientist on the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Nautilus exploration vessel. @nautiluslive

What kind of octopuses were they? Muusoctopus robustus - a small white/purple colored deep-sea cephalopod that lacks an ink-sak. When the baby octopuses (larvae) hatch from the eggs they’ll immediately begin life on the sea floor as a bottom dwelling (benthic) species. ⁣

“We really don’t know much about the deep sea—we’ve seen less than 1% of the world’s deep ocean bottoms. On any particular dive you could be shocked by something,” the scientist told KQED.⁣

Well OctoNation is super surprised! Octopuses are largely thought of as anti-social creatures who do not congregate— much less hang out together tending to their eggs collectively. Time to rethink our assumptions based on the 1% we know huh? What are your thoughts nation? It’s our hope that with the viral attention these octopuses are getting that even more funding comes through for these amazing scientists. We are sooooooo here for it!!⁣

Freediving bliss 💎 have you ever tried it?
By @krystalklear
~ 💦Trying new things is #brave. When you make the choice to experience something in life that you aren’t used to, it can truly challenge your personal growth. I can’t imagine living the same thing day in and day out and never taking risks. That seems disastrous and would lead to a stagnant life. Diving regardless of location typically allows for new experiences, new wildlife, new things to see. No dive is exactly like another. Diving in the #florida springs was incredible. The trip was far too short but nonetheless I am grateful for the awesome people I met and the beautiful springs I had the pleasure of exploring. I’ll be back next month and I cannot wait to see more springs! How are you pushing yourself? What are you doing to challenge your growth? 💦

Sawfish are very unusual, from below you can see they are like Rays and from above laying on the seabed they look like Rays, but then you have the dorsal fins that give a shark-like appearance - but they aren't sharks, they are a Ray species that can grow into one of the largest sized marine animals - unfortunately suffering from overfishing and habitat destruction #savesawfish #endextinction #saveourseas
