Video: scientists have discovered world's largest concentration of octopuses

It is Known that octopuses are mostly solitary lifestyle. Scientists rarely meet their accumulation, but in the beginning of 2018 was greatly surprised to find a group of hundreds of octopuses on the ledge Dorado off the coast of Costa Rica. Then they did not know that this year they will do even more amazing discovery, namely, to find the "children's garden" filled with thousands of octopus sits on her eggs. It is located on the coast of California.

Young parents placed the eggs on the cracks of an extinct underwater volcano Davidson. It is located at a depth of 3.2 km to capture the underwater marine life was only due to the deep-sea vehicle "Hercules". The researchers noticed some flickering around the octopus, therefore, hypothesized that under them circulates warm water, warmed by the volcano.

To change the water temperature, it is necessary to re-lower the apparatus to a greater depth. If their assumption about the warm water is confirmed, then the octopus deliberately looking for a warm place to incubate their eggs. The video shows that they are well developed and look healthy. The same cannot be said of the eggs were found on the ledge Dorado — they were something corrupt, but what exactly is still unknown.

According to lead scientist, the exploration vessel "Nautilus" Chad king (agent King), is the largest concentration of octopuses not only on the West coast of the United States, but all over the world. According to scientists, 99% of the detected species is the mother, protecting the offspring.

This is not the first news lately regarding octopuses. In October, during water treatment in a National Park, Kaloko-Honokahau, was found . Contrary to his sweet appearance, he easily ate a baby crab.

What do you think, what other secrets are kept underwater depths? Its realistic or fantastic suppositions can write in comments or .
