Scientists in Hawaii discover a tiny baby octopus on plastic marine debris while conducting coral reef monitoring. It is so small that it's just the size of a pea، as the Technical Times said.

Last August، scientists at the Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park in Hawaii posted several photos of a tiny baby octopus that they discovered while taking a break from coral reef monitoring. Evidently، they also picked up plastic debris along the way، and noticed the tiny creature among the pile.

The scientists note in their post that they released the baby octopus in their next dive، leaving it in a “small protected space.” Soon after، however، the team discovered another baby octopus in another pile of plastic debris، but this time showing its fierce side as the baby octopus was found attacking and killing a baby crab.
