A Lone Female Octopus Surprises Officials with Tens of Thousands of Babies
11-1-18, Fox News -- At University of Georgia's Marine Education Center and Aquarium, it was discovered that 'Octavius' the female octopus went into hiding for roughly a month, officials were baffled. Her normal behavior was to greet visitors as the Savannah Morning News reported. The discovery of the tens of thousands of baby octopus was first seen as a 'cloud' until realization that Octavius had laid a batch of eggs.
As the female came to the aquarium in August 2018 and there was no male in the tank, officials realized she was already pregnant. The fact that a female common octopuses can store a male octopus’ sperm for weeks before the eggs are fertilized and eventually laid. When the female is ready she will search for a sheltered place where she will lay and brood the eggs without disturbance.
Typically Octavius will now likely die that she’s laid her eggs and they've hatched. The mother will protect the eggs after they’re all done hatching out; then the mother dies giving the last part of her life protecting her 'kids.'
