Know little about Octopus? Well we have a gist for ya! An octopus is a cephalopod mollusc of the order Octopoda. It has two eyes and four pairs of arms and, like other cephalopods, it is bilaterally symmetric (symmetry in which similar anatomical parts are arranged on opposite sides of a median axis so that one and only one plane can divide the individual into essentially identical halves). Also, an octopus has a hard beak, with its mouth at the center point of the arms and has no internal or external skeleton (however some species have a vestigial remnant of a shell inside their mantles), allowing it to squeeze through very tight places or holes. Octopuses are among the most intelligent and behaviorally flexible of all invertebrates. Doubting? Read on to find out why!
You are going to be as surprised as some fishermen were when they caught this smart and incredible animal in action. A fishing boat near the Alaskan Chiswell Islands pulled an octopus on board, but little did it know the people in the boat will be stunned by its behaviour.
What they saw might make you become jealous of the octopus especially when you are in tight corners.
Meanwhile, when the octopus was still nowhere close Kraken-sized, it was still a big creature as when it was taken on board, but finally pulled an even bigger surprise for the fishermen.
The video below showing a desperate octopus will really entertain you as it is quite an interesting one to watch!
After watching this video you would realize that Octopi can shrink their diameter, in a rather amazing manner!
It will leave you dumbfounded and make you certain that desperate creatures can pull amazing stunts. Have fun while watching!
Now that we know these remarkable, intelligent creatures are able to do this, you would never disregard them again. You would definitely rate octopus as a very intelligent and boneless creatures onwards right? They are really not as foolish as fish. They can also flatten themselves to fit into anything possible. Just so you know law of physics does not hold true for octopus.
Frankly speaking, I am a little envious of the octopus. Just picture having such ability and maybe when you are forced into a place you can ordinarily escape say by nagging relatives at an embarrassing family meeting? Or what about sliding into a movie theater without making any payment for the ticket? Besides, nobody would sincerely want to sit near an octopus? Just picture where this is real for you!
