    I hate to tell ya, but a lot of the species that go on our standard plates, are much more intelligent than previously thought. You may as well become a vegetarian with this logic. It's healthier to realize that everything in nature, including this octopus, must consume other living matter to sustain itself. Not even herbivores are innocent, considering plants are a living thing too, and herbivores would strip their habitats of plant life, without predators to keep them in check. Eating only what your body needs to maintain its functions is the more realistic road, imo. Can't undo being an omnivore in one generation, just leads to essential nutrient deficits.

    While it's sad the octopus has such a short life span, I read in a book it's theorized the octopus experiences time differently than us due to the sheer amount of information they're processing basically all the time. I'd like to think in those really brief moments where they swim up and touch humans, it's like they're having days long conversations just from simple touch and taste and smell. And idk. Thinking about this just makes me reflect on how we can stretch out our perception of time just by noticing and appreciating all the things around us similar to the octopus.

    Unfortunately, octopods start life from just scratch. The mother is so weak she usually just dies after that, and the offspring will just eat the corpse, and the daddy gets post nut clarity and just sorta floats around till something eats him.

An octopus is the perfect creature for something like this, and she's adorable and deserves to be remembered fondly for years to come!

    Should have watched more Octolab TV lol. (on here). They are VERY crafty creatures. They set up a similar maze and the Octopus just went 3d and went AROUND it by going infront of the panels lolol (just like in this). Also anywhere their beak can fit, so can they. They've not uploaded for a while, but have loads of videos on octopus behaviour.

    As an animator once tasked with animating an octopus, I could tell their arms had independent intelligence. It’s the most difficult thing to animate bar none. Almost impossible to do it all 100% correct without cheats.

  • @carsonhunt4642


    2 ай бұрын

    What’s the proof they have intelligence in the arms tho? Like what is the specific biological difference in their arms?? we have gray matter in our spines that also process and integrate (make decisions) without needing to go to our main brain. To me it just seems like standard sensory information from the peripheral nervous system being processed the same way we do our automatic responses.

    Ok so a bit of background i am a 3D Modeler/Animator i was once given a project to sculpt and animate the character now the keypoint that the client needed was Realism so i had to make it lifelike 15 Hours........for 15 Hours i tried mimicking a creature that has no bones and basically works like a Sentient Alien Blob Of Goo . within those hours one of they key things i learnt is that octopus like the Cartoons or as an Animated character is much better and less time consuming than trying to understand an alien morphology and @carsonhunt4642 The proof is the literal fact that after getting an arm cut, the severed arm still manages to blend in and stay alive for almost an hour, this is not muscle spasms , its almost like an individual consciousness in short the severed tentacle is now sentient tho it cant feed itself (or anything in that matter) it will bide its time doing what a single copiousness with limited time would do Survive i dont think any other creatures in our planet other than squids and octopus have such an ability (i may be wrong , we know more about space than we do our own oceans 🤷‍♂)

Было бы интересно посмотреть как осьминона пытаются научить "разговаривать", жестами или сменой цвета или путем манипуляции предметами. Подобно тому как учат горилл языку жестов. Сможет ли осьминог понимать понятия: прошлое, будущее, настоящее и говорить с их применением. Сколько знаков и сигналов она смодет запомнить, и тд. Наверно не все осьминоги живут так мало.
