Check out this video of an octopus literally crawling out of the water and dragging itself across dry land in pursuit of a meal. A family with a camera and captured the whole thing on video. Scientifically explained, apparently walking on land in the octopus kingdom is not as unique as you might think. Octopuses in captivity actually escape their watery enclosures with alarming frequency. While on the move, they have been discovered on carpets, along bookshelves, in a teapot, and inside the aquarium tanks of other fish. However, it's quite unusual to capture video of a walking octopus in action.
