Watch Thousands Of Octopus Babies Hatch

It’s really cool and not at all gross. I promise.

1. Look! It’s a baby octopus.

2. But there’s not just one. There are thousands, and you can watch them hatch in this video.

Octopus parents don’t have much time for parenting, so instead they just have thousands and thousands of babies in the hope that some of them will survive.

Female octopuses guard the eggs until they hatch. But once they’re swimming, they’re on their own.

Luckily, only one or two need to make it to ensure the survival of the octopus population. Good luck, little ones!
