    Octopus are pretty cool creatures... pretty neat looking in that box... hope it got the crab is wanting to snack on. LoL

    I remember an aquarium couldn't figure out how their sharks were disappearing from their salt tank, so they put a camera up for the night to record the tank. Shockingly to both the staff and scientist, they found that the supposedly non-aggressive octopus in the tank would hide and wait for a shark to swim by, and then grab it for food!
    Octopus are mighty, mighty underestimated creatures... smart and crafty, they are!
