Friendly octopuses wrap themselves around divers in incredible footage


Incredible footage shows a pair of octopuses hitching a journey using two divers.

The footage was taken off the Hawaii coast and shows one of the creatures appearing to camouflage to the colour of human skin, as it wraps itself around a diver.

An octopus has three hearts, no bones, and some species seem to get on well with humans.

When two young women went diving, the animals "immediately made their move," according to Shane Brown, 30, who filmed the clip.
