Octopus paints work of art at aquarium in Florida

An aquarium in Florida shared video of an octopus getting in touch with its artistic side by using its tentacles to create a painting.

The Florida Aquarium in Tampa posted a video to Facebook showing the octopus creating a painting on a plastic-wrapped canvas with the assistance of a human keeper.

The aquarium said the “enrichment painting session” was planned to coincide with the facility’s Cephalopod Week event.

The facility invited Facebook users to share their favorite octopus facts to be entered in a drawing to win the painting.
