The fact that three-fifths of an octopus’ neurons are not in their brain, but in their arms, suggests that each arm has a mind of its own. – Sy Montgomery

Suction antennae,

Hammer and tongs tentacles.

Boneless zonae.

If you go to the octopus, and if you’re not too squeamish, dissect it. You’ll find that it has a camera eye which is remarkable similar to our own. And yet we know that the octopus belongs to an invertebrate group called cephalopod mulluses, evolutionarily very distant indeed from the chordates to which we belong. – Simon Conway Morris
