The more science probes into the intelligence of the octopus, the weirder things get. In recent studies, octopus arms that had been recently detached from euthanized octopi continued to somehow be aware of their surroundings and react to danger. This wasn’t just post-mortem tremors, this is intelligence in an arm.
What was he thinking?! That sea beast does not look appetizing at all lol
The octopus is one of the more intelligent creatures on Earth. I mean not like people, but they’re pretty damn smart for being boneless underwater lumps of flesh. Sy Montgomery of Orion Magazine got a chance to meet an octopus close up, and he was amazed at the creature’s apparent intellect and emotional response.
