If you think you can control an octopus, you’re wrong. They’re like the bad guys in movies who always manage to escape. Not only can those creepy eight-legged-freaks of the ocean would try to vanish through instant camouflage, they can also open up a jar when they’re trapped inside a jar. They’re sticky suction cups also make for very useful superpowers.
Octopuses are the most intelligent of all the invertebrates. So it’s no surprise to see what happens when this little octopus is trapped inside a jar. According to its intelligence, he could easily get out. But will he? After the lid is screwed on tightly, the octopus plans its escape.
Studies have shown that octopuses learn from observation, much as we do. They are able to solve problems and get themselves out of sticky situations, as evidenced by the video below. Because they must hunt for their own food and avoid becoming food themselves, they must adapt quickly to their surroundings.
According to What Eats?, octopuses must concern themselves mostly with sharks. To avoid becoming a meal, they often spray ink to disrupt their predator’s vision. Also, many octopuses have the ability to hide in plain sight and blend in with their surroundings. Watch the clip below to see how this octopus responds after being put in a tough situation. Once you’ve watched, you’ll have no doubt as to why they are one of the smartest creatures on the planet.
The video you are about to witness will surely put you in AWE!
