    Remember this awesome guy? He got everyone excited and discussing whether or not this could be considered actual 'tool use'. Whether it is or isn't (technically), it's still amazing!

    Adorable little guy...but why are these videos so short? I would want to follow that octopus and watch what he did for as long as possible!

    According to the person who filmed/uploaded this video, it was a female/territory dispute.

    I don't know what happened to all of nevergirl's video as Hanlon's was attached to post #14. I intended to include it when I started the thread but got side tracked. Definitely a classic! Also missing is Mucktopus' (Crissy Huffard) aculeatus video should someone find a link, please add.

    Edit: Adding the Science Friday version Where Dr. Hanlon is interviewed and talks about the video, camouflage and chromatophores.

    Octopus in Love

    I found this one a while back, and LOVED it. It's a cartoon, but still hilariously funny and I wanted to share it.

    This has been VERY popular over the years. It only won an honorably mention but its popularity suggests it should have won an award.
