running with sharks

where animals and people meet. usually for the worse.

You can’t teach an old dog new tricks… but you can teach an octopus… 

We humans as a species better keep an eye on that stunning eight-legged masterpiece otherwise known as the octopus. Maybe because they have three hearts and nine brains, octopus are quite strong and incredibly smart. Though their closest relatives are muscles and snails, their level of intelligence and ability to learn is staggering. David Suzuki (aka, the Patron Saint of the Natural World) has just put out a new Nature of Things episode all about octopus. IT WIL BLOW YOUR MIND. Plus, there’s nothing quite as sinister-looking as an octopus descending and cramming itself into a tiny beaker to devour the crab within.
