My Octopus Teacher

Postby VideoGameCritic » October 7th, 2020, 7:30 pm

Saw this short movie on Netflix recently and it was amazing. Basically about a guy from South Africa who goes swimming in this isolated location each day and befriends an octopus. It really is amazing seeing two different species make a connection like that. It turns out octopuses are pretty amazing creatures. They can walk on two legs underwater, move up on land, and blend into their surroundings.

They are also remarkably intelligent, employing all sorts of sophisticated tricks for survival.

Check it out.

Now that's pretty funny guys!

Looking back at my post, it does sound a little ridiculous. But it's a true story and it will bring you to tears.

I hope somebody watches it and replies to this thread so people don't think I've completely lost my mind! LOL
