Australian divers have been shocked to discover veined octopuses in Indonesian waters taking shelter under coconut shells. It’s believed the comical behavior could be the first evidence of invertebrates using tools.
It’s incredibly cute to watch the cephalopods dragging the shells about the ocean floor, and shutting themselves safely inside. It’s a step above the way that hermit crabs take shelter because of the way the octopuses work with the shells. They must clean them, take them to their ideal location, and then work hard to get themselves inside.
So who said the octopus was a lower life form? I think these sea creatures could teach a few humans a thing or two!
