The next day, the holidaymakers decided to return to the same beach for a stroll along the sand. As they walked down the shore, they noticed a shadow slowly approaching them along the water’s edge. To begin with, they did not know what it was, but as it got closer, they realized it was an octopus.
In fact, oddly enough, it was the same octopus they had saved just a day earlier. And if they were surprised to see it again, they were even more surprised that the creature appeared to recognize them too. Not only that but the squishy little fellow then followed them as they continued along the seashore.
Continuing to follow the family, the octopus stayed with them for about an hour. The group, shocked by this behavior, captured the moment on camera and, later, Helena shared the video to YouTube. The most amazing thing the video showed was not only the way the octopus followed them, but also the interaction it attempted with the family. The octopus repeatedly attempted to express its gratitude to them in the only way it knew how: by trying the touch their feet with its outstretched tentacles.
