Octopus Walk

They’ve probably been doing it for milennia, but the behavior was never documented until recently. Octopuses occasionally stroll around the ocean floor on two legs, tucking the other six up under them into a ball (videos at site). UC Berkeley researcher Chrissy Huffard: “This is the first underwater bipedal locomotion I know of, and the first example of hydrostatic bipedal movement.”
