Description

My wife, son, and I found this octopus laid out on some rocks. It was pale and looked close to death. I moved it into some water to see if it would help. Its color improved and its muscle tone got better but it didn't immediately seek cover. I seem to remember octopi have short life spans and this one was a good size so maybe it was just its time. After taking these pictures we moved it near some cover and it hid. Hopefully it gets better or at least it'll have a more peaceful parting than getting picked apart by seagulls or harassed by more people.
