Do you ever wonder what alien life could be like? what it could turn into?
I'm interested in intelligent animals that aren't mammals - Snakes for example are quite clever I used to have 3 as pets, the way European Adders compete for mates is about the most civilized in the animal kingdom, I think they're less stupid then people.
This is a rather marvelous UK advert for cravendale; On the perils of cats with thumbs!!
But what if an animal could...well....
An octopus has better! and they are suprisingly clever - and 'alien' evolving weirdly in water. I'm not sure where they fall between cats and snakes, but could be smarter then both!
I learnt something new the other day - an octopus has a donut shaped brain with its esophagus running through it - unlike my learned friends on here
But could they evolve / have evolved into something quite clever - capable of human like intelligence - interetingly some myths of giant sea monsters - kraken are quite close to the octopus family - Cephalopods - they're known to reach 13m and there could be bigger ones we don't know about as they swim very deep and surface rarely...
So - there could be aliens in the depths - and i wonder to the creationists on here - why would god devise such a brain?
