breaking news: octopus builds house

The end of the semester has brought its usual brand of insanity this week, so no substantial posts so far -- but here's a great story that came across my RSS feeds this morning from The Guardian: scientists have discovered (and filmed) octopuses using coconut shells to construct hiding places on the ocean floor. Thanks to YouTube I can embed a video of the octopus in action.

Happy Wednesday!
