SciAm: A tool-wielding octopus? This invertebrate builds armor from coconut halves (12/14/09)

Yep, your eyes didn't fool you. It's an octopus sitting in a coconut shell. This critter has enough intelligence and strength!
"While I have observed and videoed octopuses hiding in shells many times, I never expected to find an octopus that stacks multiple coconut shells and jogs across the seafloor carrying them," Julian Finn, of the Museum Victoria in Australia...said in a prepared statement.
Hard to believe? Check out the video below.
