Crazy Group of Aussies Do The Unthinkable When They Come Across This River.

Just a casual day in Blacksmiths, New South Wales, Australia. A group of energetic Aussies decided to make the best of the river they were hanging out by. The guy in the truck started scoping out the depth of the river with his buddy to see just how shallow the water was.

It Was a Simple Octopus Video Until It Surprises Us with This.

Now here’s something you don’t see caught on video too often. An octopus who can change its color is a common occurrence and they are skilled in the art of color change, but what makes this clip so interesting is the way the octopus instantly changes its color to match the sandy sea floor after being threatened by the scuba diver. It’s almost like we’re watching a chameleon but instead in the sea world.

We see it using its skill to camouflage which ultimately can be used to startle and warn ...
