An octopus supermom

This octopus died in 2011, but scientists didn’t tell her amazing story until this year. She was spotted in the same place, holding her eggs in her arms, for a whopping 4.5 years—smashing the previous record for egg brooding. In 53 months, she was never seen eating, and over time she turned from pale purple to ghostly white. Like most female octopuses, she died after her watch ended—but her eggs hatched successfully.
