Baby Octopus - A mothers ultimate sacrifice

A mothers ultimate sacrifice from Koos du Preez on Vimeo.

"A Giant Pacific Octopus mates only once and when it has done so, it has already begun dying. The mother will lay her eggs in her den and stay there and never leave.. not even to eat.. once the eggs hatch, she is allowed to leave.. but only in spirit.. her body must stay behind as a reminder of her ultimate sacrifice."
