Watch An Octopus Hide Itself In A Coconut | IFLScience

Watch An Octopus Hide Itself In A Coconut | IFLScience | Pet Sitter Picks | Scoop.it
The BBC has captured incredible underwater footage of an octopus collecting the halves of a coconut shell in Indonesia to use as protection at a later date.  In the clip, a flounder is following the veined octopus (Amphioctopus marginatus) as it scuttles to find the second half of a coconut shell. Although the video seems to suggest the flounder is about to stir up trouble, it is more likely trailing the octopus for a very different reason. 
Rachele L's insight:

Go on with your bad self, little octopus!

The findings, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences this week, could also explain signature cat traits like low light activity and a hypercarnivorous diet.
