Octopus has a lov-e-ly bunch of... well, you'll see  

But this cheered me right up:

Octopuses are finding discarded coconut shells and toting them around as makeshift shelters.  This makes them, officially, the first tool-using invertebrate.

You seriously gotta see this:

If you listen veeeery closely, you can hear the little octopuses say, "A HOME, AH HAZ WUN" as they toddle about with their widdle shells.

I never thought of octopuses (octopi?) as cute, but that view has certainly changed.
