When you think of “home”, the first image that comes to mind for most people is a shelter; somewhere they can kick off their shoes and relax away some of the stressors of the day.
It’s a place where regardless of whatever else is going on in the world you feel safe, or at the very least most comfortable. As it turns out, some animals function in the same exact way, so when divers discovered a massive clam shell on the ocean floor they never expected to see a Veined Octopus grab the pieces for itself! Not only that, the octopus was intelligent enough to bring both of the pieces together back to a perfect fit, it also fit it’s entire body inside to hide.
Just like humans animals have the innate urge to protect themselves from predators, yet even still the many different ways octopi manage to do that are simply mind blowing.
