Boo! Octopus Scares Off Stingray Hidden in the Sand

A diver exploring the waters off the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia, captured the moment when a sand octopus frightened away a stingray camouflaged in the sand, footage shared to Instagram shows.

Freediver and underwater photographer Jules Casey often posts footage of what she sees below the waves to her OneBreathDiver Instagram account, where she has over 90,000 followers.

Her work documents interesting marine life, as well as dangers posed to underwater creatures by pollution. This footage was first shared to Instagram on June 25. Credit: Jules Casey via Storyful
