‘Extraordinary’: Video shows octopus pushing pipe with eggs inside back towards ocean




On June 6, Sheree Marris, an Australian marine biologist, discovered a white pipe washed ashore on a beach in Melbourne’s McCrae suburb and decided to pick it up. 

But when she went to retrieve it, she saw reddish-colored legs start to emerge from inside the pipe. It was an octopus. 

Marris started recording video of the octopus attempting to roll the plastic pipe, which Marris soon discovered appeared to have eggs inside it, back into the ocean.

The marine biologist can be heard in the background of the video admiring the creature as it slowly rolled the pipe back towards the water, “Look at that, how extraordinary!” 

“She was trying to protect her eggs inside, which were hanging like little white chandeliers from the roof of her makeshift nursery,” Marris said. 

Marris eventually took the pipe out into the water and stabilized it so it wouldn’t “roll around and back up on the shore.
“It was one of the most remarkable things I have ever seen,” she added.

Tiny terrapin sees off thirsty lion and lioness from a waterhole


  • A fearless terrapin is seen aggressively defending its waterhole from two lions
  • Footage was captured by Reggi Barreto, 30, in Greater Kruger Park, South Africa
  • The safari guide said the terrapin behaviour was ‘surprising’ and ‘incredibly rare’

A territorial terrapin has been captured showing two lions who is boss as it aggressively shoos them away from its waterhole. 

In the video the tiny animal is seen spooking the male and female lions by popping up in the water inches from their noses and charging towards them as they try to quench their thirst in Greater Kruger Park, South Africa.

The unusual footage was captured by safari guide, Reggi Barreto, 30, while on safari with a private guest near the Sand River in the MalaMala Private Game Reserve.

Mr Barreto said: ‘There were plenty of elephants and general game along the way as we headed into the area where the lions were.

‘I knew the lions would look for water to drink and we positioned ourselves in the perfect spot with the sunlight in our favour, ready for the sighting.

‘What came next we did not expect – I was pleasantly surprised when the terrapin came out of the wallow towards the male and then the lioness.’

The guide said that although the lions were mildly annoyed by the small reptile the lion and lioness continued to drink from the fresh waterhole until satisfied.

Despite both lions having blood on their chins from recently hunting a zebra foal the terrapin seemingly had no fear as it popped up just inches from the predators’ mouths.

Mr Barreto added: ‘Both lions drank their fill despite the interruptions from the terrapin and then headed back closer to the zebra foal to lay down, as it was a very humid day.’

‘It was an incredibly rare sighting for me to film – watching the terrapin approach the lions that had blood on their chins from the zebra. It seems as though the terrapin was actually more interested in getting some of that blood, as opposed to ‘chasing the lions away’.

Mr Barreto said that capturing the right moment ‘is all about understanding animal behaviour and predicting what they will do next.’

He added: ‘It requires plenty of patience searching for animals and spending time with them to see how the sighting will pan out.’
