VIDEO OF THE DAY – Octopus tools

We are not alone.

It’s always been thought that we were the only species on the planet to make and use tools, but as this new clip from Down Under shows, the veined octopus likes to pick up discarded coconut shells and use them as shelters.

Makes you wonder what they’d be capable of if they found a Swiss Army knife lying around.
