Coconut in a hurry

The octopus is a surprising creature. This is weird. And funny. And charming.

From there you can find another one here, which is equally surprising, and quite different from the first one.

Thanks for this to Clive Thompson at Collision Detection, where he noted: If these things ever develop opposable thumbs we are, clearly, screwed.

(I reckon if these things ever develop opposable thumbs we'll have to provide them with dress-up boxes and costume jewelry.)

Octopi are amazing creatures! I watched one on TV open a jar, reach in, and remove a crab, which it immediately ate.

Running on two legs is a riot! ;^D
