Watch a Baby Octopus Hatch Video

The Virginia Aquarium and Marine Center had an octopus who laid eggs. On February 7, several of the babies hatched!

In a statement by staff, they said, “While we are cautiously optimistic, it is common for octopuses to lay over one hundred eggs in its clutch to ensure at least one makes it to adulthood.”

One? ONE!

Well, thankfully, these little babies will get the best possible chance from their animal care team.

We’re rooting for you kids!
