    Octopus Genome Reveals Secrets to Complex Intelligence

    Scientific American
    By Katherine Harmon Courage | August 12, 2015

    The elusive octopus genome has finally been untangled, which should allow scientists to discover answers to long-mysterious questions about the animal's alienlike physiology: How does it camouflage itself so expertly? How does it control—and regenerate—those eight flexible arms and thousands of suckers? And, most vexing: How did a relative of the snail get to be so incredibly smart—able to learn quickly, solve puzzles and even use tools?

    Among invertebrates, cephalopods are indeed the most exciting to learn from genetically because of their complex intelligence.

    How did a relative of the snail get to be so incredibly smart—able to learn quickly, solve puzzles and even use tools?
    The same question could be said about us, as vertebrates, being relatives of sea cucumbers, urchins, starfish and some types of "worms".
