This video shows a common octopus swimming and walking over the sea floor. Octopus move using a form of jet propulsion. Water is forced out of a special structure called a funnel, and the octopus is propelled in the opposite direction. Some species are well adapted to a life on the sea floor, able to nimbly pick their way over the terrain and squeeze into rocky crevices.
