It’s Friday my lovelies, (TGIF!!) and to celebrate this happy day I bring you a truly amazing video which documents a giant Pacific octopus giving birth to what is potentially thousands of tiny babies!

Okay, most birthing videos can get pretty graphic, but this one is rather tame in comparison. As we meet the octopus, who was living in West Seattle of all places, and watch as tiny babies emerge from her den.

It’s pretty amazing footage, shot by YouTube user Seainggreen, and as they point out in the description it is a fascinating event also marked by sadness, as the mother octopus will die shortly after giving birth.

They posted: “A giant pacific octopus mother who lived just across from downtown Seattle had her hatch right under the noses of local divers. Her den was sequestered in Cove Two in West Seattle, in a location that spared her from predators and over-visitation by humans. On September 4 (aka early, early on September 5), 2010, the eggs began hatching. It’s a time of mixed emotion; joy at the hatch, and sadness at the knowledge that this event means the mother’s life will end. The hatch lasted a full week, after which the mother died. Spoiler alert: Best footage comes starting at 3:24. Enjoy!”

Have a look at this unbelievable footage below!
