The ocean is filled with a vast array of interesting creatures far opposite of those we typically see on land. It's a completely different underwater world where creatures large and small make their home in the deep sands and coral reefs nestled in the salty sea. If you're lucky enough, you'll come across a fascinating creature or two when you take a trip to the beach. On occasion, you'll find crabs, sand dollars, small schools of fish, and even occasional jellyfish. It’s simply magical to watch these animals to go about the ins and outs of their daily routines.
Sometimes, though, sea-inhabiting creatures end up nearer to land than they should be, resulting in them washing ashore. For a water-dweller, this is a life or death situation. A man named Pei Yan Heng was visiting a beach one day when he happened upon a situation much like this. As he was walking along the shore, he saw a tiny animal that appeared to be struggling on the shore. His compassionate instincts immediately kicked in and he walked over to assess the situation. Much to his great surprise, the helpless animal was a tiny octopus!
He quickly grabbed a container, filled it with water, and gently ushered the struggling octopus inside it. Using his utmost caution, he slowly made his way back to the shore. He captured the footage of the miraculous release and it is absolutely breathtaking! After the tiny octopus is released, he finds his own special way to thank the kind man for his selfless actions. Check out the video below to see what the little octopus does!
