Amazing Octopi

After a year and a half reading about coral reefs and the creatures that inhabit them, the octopus has emerged as my favorite animal, hands down.  Here are my favorite things about octopuses:

  1. They can squirt ink to distract and confuse predators allowing them to escape danger.
  2. They can change the color of their skin, to camouflage themselves.
  3. They can change the texture of their skin, also for camouflage.
  4. They are very intelligent, capable of solving complex problems.

But don’t take my word for it, check out this video from National Geographic:
