UNDER THE SEA — Perhaps you've never heard of an Amphioctopus marginatus. Here's what you need to know. It's a peppy little octopus that likes to jog across the ocean floor. Check it out.

"Oh!" you might be thinking. "I saw one of those octopuses in My Octopus Teacher! They also like to cover themselves with shells and ride around on sharks, right?"

Unfortunately, that's a different type of octopus called Octopus vulgaris. But the two critters do have some similarities. They're both rather small and have a bunch of legs. Plus, they are smarter and more agile than most of us give them credit for.

So next time you're feeling uninspired and don't want to get up off the couch for a jog, just spend a few seconds watching this video. If a cephalopod can take time out of its day for a run, surely you can as well.
