"I have long been an admirer of the octopus. The cephalopods are very
old, and they have slipped, protean, through many shapes. They are the
wisest of the mollusks, and I have always felt it to be just as well
for us that they never came ashore...."

I saw a show a while ago where they had an octopus in a tank, and showed it a jar with food in it. All they did was unscrew the lid and screw it back on then put it in a tank the other side of the room. The octopus was then able to climb out of his tank, "walk" across the floor, climb into the other tank, unscrew the lid and get the food.

"Once we saw him juggling the hermit crabs in his tank, another time he threw stones against the glass damaging it."...it's like a benevolent teen!.
