Octopuses are probably the most intelligent creatures outside of the vertebrate phylum to which we humans belong (which includes fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals). It's a fact that the octopus has a very good capacity for learning and has been shown to develop skills during tests. Their curiosity is amazing… you really feel they “scan” you when looking at them face to face . It has been estimated that they are as smart or even smarter than dogs.

      I love octopuses. Have you ever seen the cities they build ? The biggest and the most beautiful houses are in the center and they all have gardens in front...It's for real.

      Gorgeous shots but I'm not convinced they will take the place of "man's best friend".... and they can't bark.
