When we do kind things for others, we always like to hear a thank you. Receiving acknowledgement for doing something kind is very important and when we do favors for animals, we typically don’t expect them to be able to thank us. While you might not think of the octopus as being the most appreciative creature in the world, the response he received from the very grateful sea animal will shock.
Film maker Pei Yan Heng was at the beach in Cyrene Reef, Singapore when he stumbled upon an octopus stranded far above the water line. Pei filled up a cup of water and scooped up the octopus before releasing him back into the sea. Once fully recovered, the octopus swam up to Pei’s boot and reached out a tentacle in a moment of pure and beautiful gratitude.
The octopus left its tentacle there for a few moments, slowly removed it and started to swim away. Check out the incredible moment in the video below!
