The ocean is both a really mysterious and amazing creation. Even up to this day, there are still creatures that are yet to be discovered in the depths of the ocean.
As it covers 75% of the Earth, most people make a living through it especially those that live near the sea. Their main source of income is fishing.
Just like in this case of an ordinary fisherman in Mindanao. But one day, he managed to catch a really rare creature from under the sea.
In a report by GMA News, a giant octopus that measures 8 feet was caught by a lucky fisherman in Sibutu, Tawi-Tawi.
As for the method the fisherman used to be able to catch such a big creature, that is still left unknown.
Because such size of a creature was really rare, the photos uploaded on the Facebook page of GMA news became viral. It now has 78,000 reactions, 4,500 comments and 24,000 shares. All from people who are very curious about the crustacean.
Meanwhile, there are also other who felt alarmed after seeing the post. According to them, the sea creatures might also be suffering from the effects of global warming, which is why they try to seek out comfort by leaving their natural habitat and trying to find a more comfortable home.
There are also other netizens who commented that it could have been better if the fisherman just returned the octopus to the sea rather than bringing it to the land. They also said that the octopus could have lived longer if it was left in the ocean.
