Octopus emerges from shell and escapes fisherman's boat

Shellfish caught by a fisherman in Suruga Bay, Japan, was not what it first appeared. Another member of the fishing party, Ai Miura, captured this video as an octopus emerged from the shell and leaped off the side of the fishing boat to return to the water. She uploaded the video to Twitter on July 7. Small octopuses are known to requisition shells left behind by other fish, using them for protection. Credit: Ai Miura via Storyful
