Many Things Under a Rock- The Mysteries of Octopuses

Techstination feature for Wednesday, June 28, 2023

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.     The headlines are pretty frequent….   Octopuses shown to map their visual landscape much like humans do.  Or…Watch an octopus waking up from what scientists think could have been a nightmare.   Want to learn more about these intelligent, amazing creatures of the sea?  Alaska Pacific University marine biology professor David Scheel is out with  Many Things Under a Rock: The Mysteries of Octopuses.  And studying them can be challenging..

“They’re hard to find because they are excellent at camouflage.  And they are somewhat finicky to capture and somewhat finicky to observe.”

You may remember Dr. Scheel from a PBS documentary.  The book is fascinating and sometimes surprising. ..

“They have recall and learning.  They can recognize faces.”

The book once again…is Many Things Under a Rock: the Mysteries of Octopuses.  

You can find us at   I’m Fred Fishkin.
