Just an Octopus, Carrying His Stuff

When diver Julian Finn saw this octopus walking along the sea floor carrying two halves of a coconut shell, he couldn’t stop laughing at the ridiculous sight!

"I almost drowned laughing when I saw this the first time," Finn told the BBC. "I could tell it was going to do something, but I didn't expect this — I didn't expect it would pick up the shell and run away with it."

But the octopus knew what it was doing. Those shells make a nice portable predator-proof bed to curl up in -the perfect hiding place. -via HuffPo

Soldier #1: Where'd you get the coconuts?
Arthur: We found them.
Soldier #1: Found them? In Mercia? The coconut's tropical!
Arthur: What do you mean?
Soldier #1: Well, this is a temperate zone.
Arthur: The swallow may fly south with the sun or the house martin or the plover may seek warmer climes in winter, yet these are not strangers to our land?
Soldier #1: Are you suggesting coconuts migrate?
Arthur: Not at all. They could be carried.
Soldier #1: A five ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut.
Arthur: I'm not interested!
