  1. Tool use was once thought to be an exclusively human skill, but this behaviour has now been observed in a growing list of primates, mammals and birds. … ‘They [the octopi] do things which, normally, you’d only expect vertebrates to do.’

    Gee, maybe eventually we’ll figure out that we’re just not as completely unique as we like to think we are! 🙂

  2. Brilliant! How clever! Those coconuts look really cosy. They’ve got some speed in those legs too!
