Octopus shows Human Characteristics

Sydney, Australia -- Scientists in Australia believe they have discovered a new species of octopus with human characteristics.

They filmed the veined octopus in Indonesia making it's own shelter on the sea floor.

The animal picked out halved coconut shells, emptied them out, carried them under its body, and put two shells together to create a hiding place.

Researchers believe it's the first evidence of tool use in an invertebrate animal.
