In what has come as quite a surprise to scientists, this octopus proves that octopuses can use “tools”. It walked away with a coconut shell and used it as a makeshift shelter in sparse conditions. “I almost drowned laughing when I saw this the first time,” researcher Dr. Julian Finn, told BBC News. “I could tell it was going to do something, but I didn’t expect this — I didn’t expect it would pick up the shell and run away with it.”
