A guy makes friends with an octopus that appears to be about as friendly as a dog.
Now, the octopus is a remarkably intelligent animal. But here’s the interesting thing: The octopus is related to some plenty stupid animals. That guy might not have had as much luck with a clam.
See, for example: Is the octopus a second genesis of intelligence? Can its strange powers provide insights for robotics or the human mind?
Scientists clash over why octopuses are smart. New findings show, the brainy seafood breaks all the rules about why some life forms are smart.
There is a lot of intelligence in nature.
