Additional Notes

From The Publisher*

Part of the award-winning Scientists in the Field series, The Octopus Scientists takes readers to the waters off of Moorea, Tahiti, to study the mind of the mollusk. Follow scientists as they uncover the secrets of its advanced intelligence and learn what these thinking, feeling creatures have to teach us about the oceans, its animals, and ourselves.
 



With three hearts and blue blood, its body unconstrained by jointed limbs or gravity, the octopus seems to be an inhabitant of another world. The octopus also has the powers of a superhero: it can shape shift, change color, squirt ink, pour itself through the tiniest of openings, or jet away through the sea faster than a swimmer.

Most intriguing of all, octopuses are remarkably intelligent. This book, an inquiry into the mind of an intelligent invertebrate, is also a foray into our unexplored planet. These thinking, feeling creatures can help readers experience and understand our world (or even life itself) in a new way.
