Coconut-Carrying Octopuses And Their Komic Kin

Not cryptozoological, but the first video evidence of an invertebrate (we are being told) using a tool. I do remember those scifi movies about giant octopuses using submarines in whatever way they wish, but, well, those are all science fiction, right?

This newest video of a galloping mollusk gave me some ideas on what else might be out there.

Needless to say, Phillip Blackman has already shown us his Lovecraft, “An Octopus Opening a Can of Zebras.”

Of course, there must be others. How about a tool-using squid, like Jackhammer Jill, drawn by Adam Koford.

Anyone else?

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
