A group of octopuses have invaded a beach.



A dozen of the eight-legged sea creatures were spotted on Ceredigion beach on the Welsh coast on Friday (27.10.17) crawling onto the shore, the BBC has reported.

Although it is uncommon for octopuses to be seen on land, it is particularly rare for there to be around 25 in one place.

Brett Stones, who runs dolphin tours off the coast, said: ''It was a bit like an end of day's scenario.

''There were probably about 20 or 25 on the beach. I have never seen them out of the water like that.''

Brett also said he tried to move as many as he could back into the water, but the next day he found many dead ones washed on the beach.
