An Octopus has a complex nervous system, excellent sight, and is the most intelligent and behaviourally diverse of all invertebrates. It inhabits a wide range of the ocean regions, from coastal coral reefs to abyssal depths. The extent of its intelligence and learning capability is not yet well defined. In laboratory experiments, octopuses can be trained to distinguish between different shapes and patterns. They have been reported to practice observational learning and playing - by repeatedly bouncing toys against a current in their aquariums. Octopuses have inspired artists across centuries. They appear in mythology as sea monsters like the Kraken of Norway, the Akkorokamui of the Ainu, the Gorgon of ancient Greece or in Japanese erotic art, shunga.
