    Got this from another forum and I thought it was pretty cool. Remember to watch the vidios (both the coconut and the seaweed imitations)

    No-one believes me when I tell them that I saw footage of walking octopii back when I was young, thanks for bringing this up Zongyi

    I was beginning to doubt if I had seen it myself, it was so weird and spooky and so long ago I thought maybe I just dreamed it...

    I've heard octopi are great escape artists if you have one in a tank.

    mabudon- Hehe, and they said it was a first time observation

    Dyflam- I don't have one, but they can escape through the smallest of holes. I frogot where I heard it, but some octopus was actually escapeing its tank every night to go eat the fishes in other tanks. It would return to its tank afterwards so the owner didn't find out for a while. Zongyi

    Octopusses (octopi?) are also very intelligent animals which can solve a lot of problems scientists have set them!
