Good morning everyone such a lovely morning here in Newie it is creature day and this week's creature is the Coconut Octopus heard of it, I haven't till now.
This octopus is named for its habit of carrying coconut shells across the sea floor and using them to build fortresses. Before construction can begin the octopus must dig up and thoroughly clean its building materials. During this time the shells afford no protection leaving them open to attack from predators including fish and crabs.
They are the only invertebrate known to use tools and one of only two octopuses known to walk on two of its legs.
When threatened they retreats into two halves of its coconut shell and pulls them together, forming a near impenetrable orb.
