Topic: In an Octopus's Garden
Posted: Friday, March 26, 2021 8:48:53 AM
The link at the end of this post is about an Alaskan professor
who adopted an octopus for family and professional
purposes. It was filmed by the famous NATURE PBS
producers. I've seen the program twice , and it was a
true life changer in how I viewed the amazing species
called Octopus . One of the astounding things that they
discovered was when they filmed this octopus , named
Heidi , in a sleep state , she was - at times - apparently dreaming.
They also discovered that she interacted quite differently
with individuals , and she would purposely watch some
of their tv with them. :)

Please do see this film !
It will make you smile and laugh , and enhance your
appreciation for this wonderful creature that God made
at the Genesis of creation.

Note : Upon getting this link for this post , I was saddened
to learn of her passing . May her memory dwell in more people's
hearts as they see this memorable and touching story.
