Default Aussie scientists find coconut-carrying octopus

SYDNEY (AP) - Australian scientists have discovered an octopus in Indonesia that collects coconut shells for shelter—unusually sophisticated behavior that the researchers believe is the first evidence of tool use in an invertebrate animal.

The scientists filmed the veined octopus, Amphioctopus marginatus, selecting halved coconut shells from the sea floor, emptying them out, carrying them under their bodies up to 65 feet (20 meters), and assembling two shells together to make a spherical hiding spot.
