Octopus opens a jar, from the inside

In this video from Japan’s Enoshima Aquarium, an octopus unscrews the lid of a jar … from the inside. Afterwards, the octopus stays in the jar, and who can blame him (her)?

The folks at Enoshima Aquarium in Fujisawa, Japan have some other wonderful videos, by the way, including these transparent eel larvae. To see more, visit the website, and search for the words “Enoshima Aquarium.”

Octopuses are very intelligent, amazing creatures. Did you see the story earlier this week about their ability to sense light with their skin?
