Your gotta love the cephalopods... Laughing

The octopus apparently tugged on a valve and that allowed hundreds of gallons of water to overflow its tank...

Saw that on the news the other day. So funny.

I also recently read an article in Aquarium Fish International magazine about an octopus at an aquarium in Germany who kept shooting out the 2000 watt spotlight above his tank by shooting a stream of water at it. The workers were baffled at why the light kept short circuiting until they decided to spend the night at the aquarium to find out what was going on and caught the octopus in the act. Hilarious! Apparently they are very intelligent creatures and can get bored.
