Lights out, plskthx

An octopus at the Sea Star Aquarium in Coburg, Germany is annoyed by a spot light over his tank and turns it out himself.

"We knew that he was bored as the aquarium is closed for winter, and at two feet, seven inches Otto had discovered he was big enough to swing onto the edge of his tank and shoot out the 2000 Watt spot light above him with a carefully directed jet of water."

Hi Window, its your Brother Mark just felt I'd check in and say Hi. How's life. I myself am doing great. Heat in Chico can get a bit draining though.

I have the same fascination with cephalopods. There's something very smart going on. Can't wait for science to tease this out.
