OK so I have a documented interest in cephalopods (squid, specifically, but wait), but I don’t see how you could fail to be amazed and astounded and, long-story-short, just sheer impressed by what an octopus does in this video. There is also a lot of handy chat and discussion and explanation of the how of it, which is nice too.

It comes from this lovely website, although I discovered it on Boing Boing. Also check out the original footage of the octopus, which has a handy bit where it shows its transformation in reverse.

Oh, cephalopods! When did you get so awesome?
