We tend to forget that humans are but a fraction of a natural world that encompasses millions of other species. And thanks to our increasingly urbanized civilization, a lot of us get super excited when we spot animals in the wild -- and we downright lose our shit when they're discovered in a place we simply don't anticipate them to be.
Which creatures are we referring to? Well ...
5 Mountain Octopus
Travelers walking up England's highest mountain, Scafell Pike, were treated to an unusual travel buddy -- an 8-inch octopus, lying on a rock a mere 10 meters from the mountain's summit.
Although octopuses sometimes get a kick out of running around on dry land -- especially when they're going senile -- this cephalopod would've had to run a marathon to scale the mountain. Climbers thought that a bird might have scooped it up and dropped the poor eight-armed vagabond down there. That, or Cthulhu is buried under this mountain, and this dead guy was making a pilgrimage.
