Octopuses decorate their yards!

Octopuses, the 8-legged and surprisingly intelligent sea creatures have a penchant for interior design. Both captive and wild octopuses actually decorate their front yards. They will often live in rocky dens and leave to hunt their prey. They eat mollusks, crabs, scallops, shrimp and other shellfish.

Once they are done eating these animals, they will take the remnants, such as mollusk shells and crab skeletons, and artfully strew them around their den. Octopus are excellent at camouflage so divers will look for their den decorations in order to track them down.
