The Great Escape

Ladies and Gentlemen,

May we present one of the most intelligent animals on the planet… the OCTOPUS! These amazing molluscs are remarkable escape artists: capable of changing their colour and texture and squeezing into the smallest gaps to camofluage themselves; squirting ink into the face of potential predators to mask themselves and their scent while they make their escape. They are capable of recognising colours and shapes, working out problems, finding their way through mazes, and even remembering a sequence of events… and now scientists have recorded octopii using coconut shells as tools! They are truly extraordinary animals! Read the story and watch the video by clicking on the photo.
