Thought this was hilarious...

Just watching a documentary on octopus on TVO right now. There was this one lab that had all sorts of critters in it. Well everytime they came in the next day they would find a bunch of crabs in the octopus tank... the crabs are normally housed all the way on the other side of the room. They couldn't figure out what was happening so someone stayed behind with a camera. When they closed all the lights and left, the octopus would crawl out of its tank, across the room, in to the crab tanks, snag a bunch of crabs, and bring them back in to its own tank Not sure why they didn't have a lid on the tank though? LOL either way I got a little chuckle out of it

the octopus is clearly rounding up his minions to create a scientific backfire and dominance in nature

I seen that show probly over 6 months ago. I thought it was pretty funny also. I couldn't belive they would climb out of their tanks to the crabs tank and then in the moring they would be back in theirs. Clever guys aren't they.

Ive seen that show too. It was great. Octopus have to be amongst the smartest creatures in the ocean.

I once had a Mexican Pigmy Octopus and he was great. He ate anything that even remotely looked like a crab or fish. The Octopus on the show was probably just stocking the refrigerator!
