Indonesian octopi have discovered a scientist in Australia that uses rubber flippers on its feet for propulsion in water - unusually sophisticated behavior that the researchers believe is the first evidence of intelligence in a vertebrate animal.

The fact that cnn is in the apparent url means nothing if the poster is intent on directing someone elsewhere.  Its possible to fool someone at least at first glance.

MY GOD! THE TENTACLES!  :o :flame:


















Sorry Stoney, I know, I'm not helping.... ;D I can verify the video player on the cnn site is from turner.com but still have not located the actual file or stream.

edit: I embedded the cnn video in your post. :)
