Two-limbed tiptoe aids octopus camouflage

octopusalgaeFreaky cool clips of octopus walking on two legs while using it's other limbs to disguise itself as a plant. It reminds me of an old Popeye cartoon.

I have no reason for posting this except that had these two awesome open standards video clips that were actually podcast-able. Wow. That's a first for any news site I've seen. Think about what would happen if everyone used open formats for news clips. Just a thought.
