FASCINATING VIDEO: Octopus Escapes Sealed Jar

The octopus is an incredibly intelligent creature. It is like really, really smart. Scary smart.

In the world of invertebrates, octopuses have really huge brains.They also have phenomenal camouflage capabilities, brilliant hunting and hiding skills, can escape through impossibly tiny holes, squirt out poison, exert a force greater than their own body weight, mimic the appearance of other sea creatures, and even open up a jar from the inside!

Researchers who study these boneless animals (there are more than 300 species found throughout the world) are convinced that they have emotions, highly developed intelligence and individual personalities.

Watch the above video and be completely fascinated — and perhaps a little unsettled — by this alien species.
