MONTEREY, Calif. (KGO) -- Marine biologists are livestreaming the search for an octopus garden, in the shade of the Monterey Bay marine sanctuary.

The Nautilus crew deployed remote submarines to explore the depths at 12,000 feet below at a rocky area where thousands of brooding octopi lay their eggs.
