Smart Animals “Octopus” Steals Crab from Fisherman.

Octopuses are sea animals famous for their rounded bodies, bulging eyes, and eight long arms. They live in all the world’s oceans but are especially abundant in warm, tropical waters. Octopuses, like their cousin, the squid, are often considered “monsters of the deep,” Crabs, shrimps, and lobsters rank among their favorite foods, though some can attack larger prey, like sharks.

Meet the Giant Pacific Octopus, perhaps the smartest of all invertebrates and the bane of many a Crab Fisherman. Boasting an enormous brain, this poacher can adopt a number of creative strategies when hunting for Crabs.

“A sure sign that an octopus has struck: a trail of empty shells, and a frustrated fisherman” made me laugh so hard.
