Beached Octopus Thanks Rescuer

A beachgoer released a stranded octopus that got stuck on the sand when the tide went out in the shallow water. After recovering, the octopus moved towards the man left shoe and placed one of its tentacles on the shoe for some time before moving off. Did you know that octopuses in captivity are sometimes given puzzles to solve? Aquarium biologists say that it’s not enough to keep octopuses fed and healthy. The highly intelligent cephalopods get unhappy if they don’t have things to do with their minds. Octopuses use tools; they can extemporize brilliantly when trying to hide; and a recent paper even suggests that they engage in warfare. Also, in a cool alien detail, they have distributed intelligence. Octopus arms can think independently of each other.
