Some of y'all may know, I am a big fan of the ocean. I like the critters in it. They're neat. However, I came across something today that wasn't just neat, it was downright astonishing and weird and freaky and totally awesome. Octopuses are digging up coconut shells that fall into the sediment, walking around with them, and then hiding under them when they pause to rest. No, seriously. Octopi are using tools! Don't take my word for it, just clicky on the link to National Geographic and read the article. And watch the video too, because it's freaking insane.

It puts the octopus in the coconut...

That's so insane and incredible! I couldn't help laughing out loud when that lil bugger/s like held onto the damn thing and when cruising along. Seriously, wow! Octopi FTW!

Have you seen the octopus at the Long Beach aquarium that takes apart a Mr Potato Head? It's awesome

Okay. That's impressive and scary. I have a new view of sea life.
