Here’s a one-of-a-kind webcam for you!
Our friends over at the Bailey-Matthews National Shell Museum have come up with the (first ever?) “OctoCam” for a live-stream view of their newest star attraction, the Giant Pacific Octopus.
For anyone who wonders how this eight armed wonder eats, plays and lives in its environment, the OctoCam live-stream enables viewers to see the Giant Pacific Octopus in its aquarium in real-time. Considering that Giant Pacific Octopuses are generally nocturnal, the stream also includes video footage of some very active moments in case viewers log in to find the octopus is asleep.
The Giant Pacific Octopus is the largest variety of the mysterious and intelligent mollusk species that has captivated people worldwide, thanks in part to recent films and books such as My Octopus Teacher and The Soul of An Octopus.
