There is a growing theory surrounding one of the most unusual, smart and capable animals on the planet. It is the octopus.
Genetically, it is…well, weird. And certain members of the scientific community have started to theorize if this incredible animal is not, in fact, a visitor from outer space. They even have a possible home planet. Europa, one of Jupiter´s moons. And even if that is a plausible yet improbable origin story worthy of DC Comics or the Avengers, it is still one of the most incredible, intelligent and shy beings on this little planet.
I will not bore you with details. Just watch this short and fun description of how the incredible octopus may -or may not- be a visitor from…well…. who knows.
Until next time
