Why are these octopuses walking out of the sea on the Welsh coast?

Look at that video below! Yes, this is one of dozens octopuses ‘walking out of the sea’ on the Welsh coast…

And the reason behind why the octopuses would strand themselves on land remains a mystery.

That’s another strange animal behavior! Why were dozens of octopuses crawling out of the sea on the Welsh coast?

Witnesses reported more than 20 of the sea creatures walking on the beach at New Quay in Ceredigion on Friday night. The same phenomenon occurred the night before.

But others were found dead on the sands on Saturday and nobody can explain why these octopuses just decided to walk out of the sea.

  1. Well, it could have something to do with Fukishima polluting the waters… maybe the radiation burns and they are trying to get away from it.

  2. Many ocean occupants beach themselves days before an earthquake also. They can also lose their instinctual migration routes from the Earth’s magnetic pull from the Sun. Let us not forget that these types of occurrences have been happening for thousands of years before now. We are just now able in our super fast media world with people all over the Earth who now have cell phones with cameras and are able to post and send these types of phenomenon quickly to anywhere. Whereas in prior centries, news of this sort would not be known in other than the region in which it took place.

  3. ALL THE SEA CREATURES ARE LEAVING THE SEA,WHY??my guess is they want to watch the light show,WHEN WAR MONGER AMERICA IS BEING BOMBED OFF THE MAP,It says in the BIBLE eveyone will watch as babylon is destroyed FROM FAR OFF….and they will,BRING YOUR MILITARY HOME AMERICA,or maybe you want to see if the rest of the World was kidding when they TOLD YOU TO GO HOME,they don’t want your help..TRY MINDING YOUR OWN BUSINESS..and get your NOSE OUT OF THE WORLDS ASS,they don’t like it,or maybe your rather be bombed into the dirt………

    • and you know that babylon is america because it tells you in the bible? show me where it tells you babylon is america

  4. Ocean mammals are toned low band frequency. Sonar is low band frequency and maybe these octopuses are disoriented in water and walk on land to escape low band frequency in ocean.
