Forget roaches taking over the Earth once humans find a way to extinguish themselves; it’s the octopus that will rule the post-apocalyptic world.

While we humans with our measly two arms wish for an extra hand or two, the octopus has eight tentacles ready to carry its tools while it sails across the ocean floor looking for its next kill.

Perhaps the reason why so many of our imagined aliens bear a striking resemblance to these sea creatures. Could they be the next evolution of intelligent life on the planet?

Full story at Smithsonian Channel.

Eerily intelligent animals.
