Watch: Virginia Aquarium’s Octopus Eggs Hatch

The Virginia Aquarium and Marine Science Center celebrated the hatching of several octopus eggs on Tuesday!

They posted an adorable video to their Facebook showing some of the little babies hatching.

It’s common for an octopus to lay over one hundred eggs in order to ensure at least one makes it to adulthood, according to the Virginia Aquarium. They are optimistic that their staff will help raise more.
