Come on, babies.  It is time to hatch.  Mom octopus does not want to wait four years.  How does she get her babies to come sooner?

She lays her eggs in warm waters.

Octopuses tend to live alone. Why did 6,000 gather to lay their eggs off central California? Two miles below is an extinct volcano. It warms the whole area. Scientists found this “octopus garden” in 2018. They watched 31 octopus nests for three years. Eggs hatch at the site after about 21 months. It takes four years or more for octopus eggs to hatch in other deep-sea spots. Cold water slows the growth of eggs. Warm water speeds it up.

God created “every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm.” (Genesis 1:21)
