No, the title is not a drill: watch this video of BABY OCTOPUSES (octopi?) hatch IRL. It’s the closest thing to magic that you’re gonna get, folks. If your Monday has been a drag…prepare for your day to drastically improve!
Diver L Evans, username Seainggreen on YouTube, filmed her dives right off of West Seattle, where she was able to catch the event on camera. She visits the octopus mother over the course of the summer, and in September during the actual hatch, she was able to hold some of the minuscule newborns during a midnight dive!
