An octopus at the University of Otago in New Zealand figured out that she could
turn off a light outside her tank by shooting jets of water at it. Replacing the light
became so expensive that the university returned the octopus to the ocean.
Jennifer Mather, a psychologist at the University of Lethbridge and author of
Octopus: The Ocean's Intelligent Invertebrate, believes that these animals have
personalities, and that they can be shy or bold, active or passive, emotional or
reserved.

The approximately one hundred species range in size, from a tiny octopus in the
Indian Ocean measuring one inch from arm tip to arm tip and weighing less than
an ounce, to the giant octopus of the Pacific Ocean, which can grow to more than
twenty feet ... This high level of coordination needed to manage eight
independent arms requires a highly developed brain, making the octopus the
most intelligent invertebrate known— at least as smart as the average house cat.
Octopuses are ...

Invertebrates. Octopuses are cephalopods. A Three Hearts Octopus blood carries
oxygen throughout their bodies, like. What Are Cephalopods? Cephalopods
include squid, cuttlefish, nautiluses, and octopuses. They are found in oceans.
Cephalopods live close to shore and also in very deep areas of the ocean. Most
cephalopods hide when in danger. Some do this by squirting a cloud of ink and
moving quickly away. Cephalopods are among the most intelligent invertebrates.

... the flashback cuttle fish, the oceanic squid, and the fastest and most intelligent
invertebrate animal on the planet, the octopus. Among the cephalopods, the
family of octopods takes its name from the fact that its member species possess
eight arms, commonly misinterpreted as tentacles. The most familiar of these are
the hundred or so members of the Octopus genus, which inhabit the ocean floor.
In these animals we find that the typical mollusc shell is either lost or internally
reduced.

Octopus eyes are similar in design to our own. Octopuses also have big brains.In
fact,they are probably the most intelligent invertebrates.In captivity they quickly
learn new tricks,such as unscrewing the lid of a jar to get at food inside! They are
not sociable animals,though—most prefer to live on their own. Unlike squids,the
majority of which are streamlined for swimming fast through the ocean,octopuses
are adapted for a life on the sea floor.Their bodies tend to be shapeless and ...
