Octopus Hitching a Ride on a Dolphin

To be fair, the octopus is just doing what all of us have always wanted to do. Joan Gonzalvo of the Ionian Dolphin Project snapped two pictures of this pair in the the Amvrakikos Gulf of western Greece:

"My hypothesis is that the dolphin might have attacked - tried to prey on the octopus - and somehow to avoid it the octopus just attached to the dolphin's belly," says Gonzalvo.

The dolphin made two leaps before it shook off the cephalopod.
