Intelligent Octopus

This has been circulating for a while, but it is a simply amazing view of octopus camouflage in action.  You see . . . It's a plant . . . it's a plant . . . it's a plant . . . OCTOPUS!  Check out the video, at least the first ten seconds. It's so cool that they change the texture of their skin, not just the color.

And in other octopus news, I think I'm getting a copy of Cowboy and Octopus for Buster (and me) for Christmas. With a title like that, how could you go wrong?

My father in MT got that for the girls, more for the Cowboy part! Watch out for the beans and bacon, and the bacon and beans....
