When this family was on a holiday at the Red Sea in Soma Bay they did a very good deed indeed. On day, while they were walking along the beach they noticed a stranded octopus in the sand on its death bed, without a way to get back into the ocean, he was slowly drying out and dehydrating.
Acting quickly, this family stepped in and saved his life by pushing him back into the water. He needed some time to recover and then he swam away.
The next day, they went to the same beach for a walk and saw a shadow in the water coming directly to them. First they didn’t recognize it, but soon they realized that it was the same octopus they rescued the day before!
He recognized them and accompanied them for a long time while they were walked along the beach and continuously tried to touch their feet. They are sure that this octopus came back to thank them for saving his life.

When we do kind things for others we always like to hear a thank you. Receiving acknowledgement for doing something kind is very important and when we do favors for animals, we typically don’t expect them to be able to thank us. This story is proof that animals also have manners and know how to give thanks.
This story is a valuable reminder that we need to be kinder to one another. If someone does something nice for you, always be sure to thank them!
