(From A Science Perspective)
The movie that captured our hearts at a time when we needed it most, ‘My Octopus Teacher’ was released to the world on September 4, 2020.
Yes! ‘My Octopus Teacher’ is about nature documentary filmmaker, naturalist, and founder of Sea Change Project, Craig Foster, and his unlikely friendship with a Common Octopus.
In the film, Craig mentions that the water can get down to 8-9C° (46-48F°)!! Brrrr!!
It’s called freediving! Craig Foster says he goes diving without a wetsuit because the cold water energizes him.
In ‘My Octopus Teacher’, Craig Foster can hold his breath for six minutes and Pippa Ehrlich can hold hers for four. Pretty impressive, right?
The fabulous and most studied of all the octopus species, the Common Octopus (Octopus vulgaris)!
