the second one sucks, but the other ones are pretty cool.

i watched a show on it on tv and they look FAKE they change color so vividly and quickly.


#2

that’s pretty cool.


#3

yeah they’re pretty nuts, its also crazy how they can fit through tiny holes, i remember being at an aqarium an the octopus tank was divided in half by a shee of plexiglass with one pinner hole in it, an it just squished right through, i don’t know if there’s any video of something like that, but it was pretty nuts to see.

RealPlayer input plugin for Winamp.
You still need RealPlayer installed for it to work. Otherwise, you’ll probably have to get Real Alternative.


#5

They also have 8 arms, or 8 legs, thats pretty frickin cool.
