Divers Spent Hours Underwater To Help An Octopus Trade A Plastic Cup For A Protective Shell

It is no secret that the oceans are becoming more and more contaminated with plastic waste. While humans are to blame, it’s the sea creatures that have to cope with the consequences. In a video captured by diver Pall Sigurdsson, a small coconut octopus (aka veined octopus) swimming in the waters of Lembeh, Indonesia was captured taking shelter inside a disposable plastic cup.


The coconut octopus is known for instinctually protecting itself with shells and other natural items found under the sea. Still, this particular creature had sadly found refuge in the most unnatural of places. Luckily, however, Sigurdsson and his team were on the scene to lend a hand. They spent hours underwater to make sure their new friend found a suitable shell to call home.


The video shows how Sigurdsson and the other divers offered the octopus many shells before it finally swapped out its plastic cup with the perfect one.
