Go Paul go! I've always been impressed with octopus and this newstory just confirms it - - Paul has the gift 8)

Now I wonder if Paul the octopus can bend cutlery, like Uri Geller......hmm.

I remember footage from the History channel's Monster Quest of an octopus attacking and eating a shark alive in an aquarium. I suspect we ought to protect this eight legged carnivore from the vengeance of the sharks.

I think that Paul should be protected against any angry German football fans who want to take a reprisal against him. All he did was to get it right, I am not sure how or if he can see into the future.

Dad was quite interested in the fact that in captivity you need to give octopi toys and games to keep them occupied becuase of how smart they are.
