According to the folks at the National Aquarium, today is the tenth annual celebration of World Octopus Day. Strange that I didn’t have it marked on my calendar. In honor of this auspicious eight-legged holiday we are reposting a a rather amazing video from from a website called “everybody loves cephalopods.” (I know that I do, usually lightly fried.) I have to admit that after watching this excerpt from a 30 minute presentation by Maggie Koerth-Baker that I am indeed fascinated by octopus brains. Definitely worth a look.
