ANILAO, Philippines (CNN) - An octopus in a popular diving spot in the Philippines has a mobile home. He lugs a tin can around with him.
Nonprofit director Robert Suntay shot this underwater video off the coast of Anilao, Philippines, of an octopus lugging a can along the sea floor.
"Octopi are very smart but shy critters," he said. "That's why I had to be really patient just waiting for it to see me, get used to me, and then react by dragging its home around. After trying to move away from me a couple of times, at the end of the video, you can see that it finally decides to just enter its can and cover itself with a shell! Brilliant move!"
