Video Treat: The Traveling Octopus

[I yield to Mr. Nature–just too worn-out to cover any more news today.]

Jambo, Mr. Nature here, with more of God’s stuff for you to enjoy.

Here we have an octopus who takes advantage of low tide to creep out of the water and crawl around the land, hunting tasty crabs. These are intelligent and versatile animals, and we’re still a ways from knowing what they’re capable of doing. I heard of an octopus playing Strat-O-Matic baseball, but I’m not inclined to believe it.

    Those are some of the most amazing things on earth. I doubt that we know more than the most basic information about them. I knew that they could be trapped in pools when the tide went out, but had never heard of them scurrying about on land. Wisdom far beyond any human’s comprehension is at work in all of creation.
