    Did you watch the video I posted of the shapeshifting octopus? It seems pretty incredible that they can change colour, shape and texture. They can spray ink to confuse their attackers. They swim using a form of pumpjet propulsion (they breathe water in then spray it out). And they are extremely intelligent. They really are a most remarkable lifeform, which is why I don't eat octopus anymore as a matter of principle

    I hope one day they develop technology and they could be the second species on the planet to evolve civilisation
