Everyone worries about sharks when they are out in the ocean, but sharks are cool. It's the octopuses you have to worry about! Case in point, this diver was coming up from his dive when he noticed an octopus attached to his back who wouldn't let go. Okay, maybe the octopus was just trying to give him a hug, but you never know!

Do you need more evidence? Fine! Here's an octopus in its natural habitat, casually walking along the ocean floor looking for food. Doesn't it look suspicious? Perhaps it's trying to hide the fact that it's going to an octopus meeting on how to overthrow humans! Actually, it was apparently hunting for crabs in the Lembeh Strait in Indonesia. Allegedly.

However, a scientist was later able to identify these as the alpine black swallowtail, a type of butterfly. We don't know, we still think they're baby Mothras. View Now
