Amazing Octopus!

Ok while this doesn't actually fit in with the theme of this blog, this was just too cool not to share. And, hey, this blog is named after a mouse, why not mention some cool animals...?

I love shape shifting animals! (Although this isn't so much shape-shifting, as color-changing). I once read that cephalopods skin cells are all individually controlled, much like pixels, and that they can therefore change each cell to match the surrounding area! Think of the implications!
I'll find out more research about these amazing creatures, and bring you the full deets about these guys.
