The Octopus

Very, very, very fascinating article and videos on octopi at National Geographic. It shows an octopus carrying around a coconut shell to use as a shelter when needed. The octopus seems to be an even smarter creature than chimpanzees when it comes to using tools. Quite interesting and the video is just great.

The full video is at the National Geographic site.

Isn't that fascinating? and we thought sea creatures were dumb!

I watched that over and over again. I LOVE watching sea creatures--I guess that's why I find aquariums so fascinating. BUT, I won't have one in my home again--WAY too much work to keep up. :)
