octopuses crawled to shore, but why?
More than two dozen octopuses were spotted slogging along a shoreline in West Wales
James Wright, curator at the National Marine Aquarium in the United Kingdom, told the Daily Telegraph and Newsweek that the number of octopuses seen on the same beach at the same time is “quite odd.”
“As the areas where they are exhibiting this odd behavior coincides with the two areas hit by the two recent low-pressure depressions and associated storms of Ophelia and Brian, it could be supposed that these have affected them.
“It could simply be injuries sustained by the rough weather itself or there could be a sensitivity to a change in atmospheric pressure.”
