Octopus Challenge

The octopus is a truly remarkable creature. This amusing and insightful program shows the octopus in action - squeezing into tiny spaces, sniffing out hidden food, even opening doors. These soft-bodied, boneless mollusks appear to outshine all the other invertebrates, but are they clever or just instinctive?

A BBC/Animal Planet co-production.

Justin Rolando, a graduate student in chemistry and chemical engineering at Caltech, will introduce the film and guide the post-screening discussion. More information.
