    The Octopus In My House
    A professor develops an extraordinary relationship with an octopus when he invites it to live in his home. The octopus, called Heidi, unravels puzzles, recognises individual humans and even watches TV with the family. The episode also shows remarkable behaviour from around the world - from the day octopus, which can change colour and texture in a split second, to the coconut octopus, which carries around its own coconut shell to hide in. But most fascinating of all is seeing how Professor David Scheel and his daughter Laurel bond with an animal that has nine brains, three hearts and blue blood running through its veins.

    Squids & Octopuses - Mysterious Hunters of the Deep Sea | Ocean Documentary

    Octopuses and squids are anything but cuddly pets. They have neither legs nor fins. Instead, they have snakelike arms, covered in suction caps - eight or ten, dangerous tentacles, which grow out of their heads. To add to their bizarre appearance, they are soft flabby, void of vertebrae or bones. When in danger, they emit foul-smelling ink. They originate from a time before humans walked the earth; from the primeval period, before fish populated the oceans. It is therefore hardly surprising, that these cephalopods seem so strange and disconcerting to us.

    Our film trip takes us to the Sea of Cortez, to the Socorro Islands, where fish are in abundance. It is here that we want to find the legendary Humboldt squid, to capture its nocturnal hunt for food on camera. Mantas, white-tip reef sharks, sea lions and dolphins accompany us. Before our late night rendezvous with the squids, we get some close ups of the sophisticated hunting techniques of swordfish, or Merlin.
    On Vancouver Island, we accompany Karen Palmer and David Pickles, experts on giant octopi, on their search for the eight-armed cephalo-pods. We are also on hand, when they greeted by their favourites, witnesses to a unique communication between man and animal.

    The Abdopus Octopus is able to leave its rock pool at low tide and walk from pool to pool hunting crabs.

    The coast is the dynamic border between land and sea; powered by the tides and thrashed by waves, this is a world of continuous change. Opportunities never last long here, so hunters are always in a race against time. The coast is the only place on the planet where predators from air, land and sea come together. Dolphins that leave the safety of the sea to fish, walking octopuses, ingenious monkeys, fishing wolves and the greatest gathering of feeding humpback whales come to the coast to hunt. For all, timing is everything.

  • Rethinking Thinking: How Intelligent Are Other Animals?

    1:33:47

    Intelligence was once thought to be uniquely human. But researchers have discovered astonishing cognitive abilities in many other species—not just our close cousins like chimps, or fellow mammals like dolphins—but also crows, parrots, and even octopuses. If we consider the intelligence of swarms, we must add bees, termites, and ants to the list of super smart creatures. Join the scientists who study smarts as we ask: What is intelligence? Why do some species get an extra dose? And just how special are humans, really?

    This program is part of the BIG IDEAS SERIES, made possible with support from the JOHN TEMPLETON FOUNDATION.

    With its three hearts, blue blood and boneless body, the octopus is the closest we may get to meeting an alien. They evolved from a common cousin more than 500 million years ago. But they're also intelligent creatures, with proven problem-solving abilities. So what happens when you invite an eight-legged alien into your living room? This film follows marine biologist David Scheel as he tracks his complex, evolving relationship with his own octopus. Using David’s first-person narrative, and linking his discoveries to octopus stories from all over the world, the film offers an insight into the extraordinary intelligence and behaviour of these incredible creatures.

    You might already know that octopuses are extremely smart invertebrates, but did you know about their lethal intelligence, venomous beak and masterful camouflage?

    With its three hearts, blue blood and boneless body, the octopus is the closest we may get to meeting an alien. They evolved from a common cousin more than 500 million years ago. But they're also intelligent creatures, with proven problem-solving abilities. So what happens when you invite an eight-legged alien into your living room? This film follows marine biologist David Scheel as he tracks his complex, evolving relationship with his own octopus. Using David’s first-person narrative, and linking his discoveries to octopus stories from all over the world, the Octopus In My House documentary offers an insight into the extraordinary intelligence and behaviour of these incredible creatures.

    Octopuses are undeniably fascinating creatures. As one of the most intelligent species of invertebrate, the octopus is capable of incredible things, from changing its shape in order to fit into very small spaces, to changing its color so that it perfectly blends in with its surroundings. They’re masterful hunters, and some of them have venom that’s even capable of taking down a human being.
    Octopuses are the sort of creepy crawly that’s endlessly mesmerizing. But there’s one thing they can do that takes this creepy crawly quality to an extreme. This is the terrifying thing you didn't know octopuses could do.

  • Untangling the mysteries of the octopus

    7:00

    The octopus is one of the most bizarre life forms on Earth — one of the smartest, most interesting, and most alien. It can camouflage itself in a flash, squeeze its entire body through a one-inch hole, and use their brains (yes, it has nine of them) to think and play. Correspondent Chip Reid visits scientists at New England Aquarium in Boston, and the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, and talks with Sy Montgomery, author of The Soul of an Octopus, about these curious creatures.

  • Octopuses Are Being Given Ecstasy in the Name of Science

    Researchers at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine think that octopuses are just like us! They have a good time while on ecstasy. The research, which yes, means giving octopuses ecstasy, can definitely be seen by some as a little unethical, but the experts say they make sure to take care of the animals. The research could help us better understand that our brain and social behavior are influenced by more basic processes than we imagined.

  • Octopus - Animal of the Day | Educational Animal Videos for Kids, Toddlers and Preschool Children

    2:41

    Hey kids! Today we’re going, to learn about one of my favorite animals: the OCTOPUS!

    The OCTOPUS lives under the sea. It is most famous for having eight arms called TENTACLES. Look at all those tentacles!

    There are more than 300 different types of octopus all over the world! Some live in shallow water like coral reefs, and others live in the deepest parts of the ocean.

    Some octopuses are really small, the size of a ball. But the biggest octopus on Earth is the GIANT PACIFIC OCTOPUS, which weighs more than THIRTY POUNDS and can stretch their tentacles FOURTEEN FEET!

    All octopuses are INVERTEBRATES, which means they have no skeleton. They can squeeze into all sorts of tight spaces.

    They also have THREE HEARTS and BLUE BLOOD. Three hearts! They must LOOOOVE their hearts.

    Octopuses eat lots of different sea creatures like crabs, shrimp, and other shellfish.

    But other predators, like SHARKS, like to eat octopuses! So they have lots of strategies to defend themselves.

    Octopuses can camouflage themselves against rocks or corals – CAMOUFLAGE means they turn different colors. Can you spot the octopus?

    They can also spray a thick black ink to distract predators while they swim away!

    And if that doesn’t work, octopuses can leave one of their tentacles behind. They will just grow it back! Easy-peasy!

    Octopuses are very smart and have excellent eyesight. They can see you coming from very far away!

    Octopuses may be smart, and cool-looking, and have three hearts and eight tentacles, but they’re also in danger. All around the world, they are losing the corals where they live because of climate change. Also, the ocean water is getting polluted with all of our human trash. The best thing YOU can do to protect octopuses is for your family to use less plastic—like plastic water bottles and plastic wrap and containers—so the octopuses have a safe place to live.

    We love octopuses.

    What is YOUR favorite thing that octopuses do?

  • Baby Octopuses at the Vancouver Aquarium

    1:17

    It has been almost seven months since C.C., the giant Pacific octopus who lives at the Vancouver Aquarium, mated and laid eggs. Earlier this week, close to 300 of her eggs hatched. The babies are only 5 millimetres in length.

    Although it is not unusual for octopus eggs to hatch in aquariums, very few hatchings have ever survived, explains Dr. Dennis Thoney, director of Animal Operations at the Vancouver Aquarium. Chances of survival are very low because giant Pacific octopuses have a seven to ten month long pelagic larval stage. To further our knowledge of octopus reproduction, we will attempt to feed and maintain some the larvae for as long as possible.

    C.C. was introduced to her male partner, Clove, last October in the Strait of Georgia display. Mating marks the beginning of the end for octopuses, and Clove died 67 days after mating. C.C. is expected to die naturally in the coming weeks now that egg incubation is completed.

    Opportunities to observe giant Pacific octopus mating are rare and we have already been extremely lucky to witness it several times here at the Vancouver Aquarium, adds Dr. Thoney. There is much to learn about octopuses and we hope to learn more as we attempt to raise the newly hatched octopus larvae.

    The giant Pacific octopus typically lays around 70,000 eggs on average, of which only a few are expected to survive to adulthood in their natural habitat.

  • Why Are Octopuses So Difficult To Spot? | The Most Intelligent Vertebrate

    3:37

    Have you ever seen octopuses? No right? Have you ever thought about why are octopuses so difficult to spot? In this video, we will discuss some more amazing facts about this creature and answer why are octopuses so difficult to spot.

    Famous for having eight arms and a large bulbous head – the octopus has made an underwater name for itself as one of the most intelligent aquatic creatures to swim in our oceans. Having eight arms is enough to set it apart from the other fishes in the sea, but, there is a lot more interesting stuff to learn about these creatures. In this video, we dive deep into the unique features of octopuses and learn some amazing facts about them.

    From April 9 to 30, 2019, scientists will embark on the DEEP SEARCH 2019 (short for DEEP Sea Exploration to Advance Research on Coral/Canyon/Cold seep Habitats) expedition to explore deepwater habitats offshore the U.S. Mid- and South Atlantic coasts. Three named canyons occur within the DEEP SEARCH study region off the coast of North Carolina: Keller, Hatteras, and Pamlico.

    During the Windows to the Deep 2018: Exploration of the Southeast U.S. Continental Margin expedition on NOAA Ship Okeanos Explorer, we explored Keller Canyon and encountered FIVE octopods over the course of the dive! Octopus are known to be the masters of hiding in their oceanic habitats, we were pretty lucky to see these Bathypolypus bairdiion. Can't wait to see what is uncovered during exploration of Keller on the DEEP SEARCH 2019 expedition!
