Octopus Challenge: Day 2

Posted on December 9, 2016

Octopus are among the most unique beings on Earth. They possess a complex genomic structure that rivals the most intelligent mammals. These invertebrate cephalopods are capable problem solvers and masters of illusion.

Currently, the Seacoast Science Center has two Pacific Red Octopus (Octopus rubenscens) on display. In this video series, you can observe their progression in problem solving, as we challenge the octopus to find its food by figuring out how to open various containers.
