 From the "Octopuses do the darndest things" department:


An octopus in a German zoo has learned to open jars of shrimp by watching
zoo attendants perform the act underwater.

Frida, a five-month-old female octopus, opens the jars by pressing her body
on the lid and grasping the sides with the suckers on her eight tentacles.
With a succession of body twists she unscrews the lid.
