Is an octopus smarter than you?

8 07 2008

Well, let’s rephrase that: can you do a Rubik’s cube?

It appears that octopi enjoy twisting and turning them, and we know they are great puzzle solvers as they escape from their tanks on a regular basis. They may be able to solve their Rubik’s cubes as well.

But that’s not the main reason that they give a Rubik’s Cube to an octopus – you can find out more here.

Regardless, I’ll be interested to learn whether any octopi are able to solve a Rubik’s Cube or not, so stay tuned.
