I have been warning y'all about this all my damn life. Get a taste for them or they will consume us all. They are about as alien a species as it gets on this planet. And they gossip. Stupid abominations. They should all be made into snack food. You ever have octopus chips from Japan? They are awesome. Just like when you eat the real thing with a nice dipping sauce.
Wherever humans have changed the environment—and you’d be hard-pressed to find a place we haven’t—there are winners and losers. Cities around the world shelter pigeons, naturally adapted to life on rock ledges. Farms allow weedy plants to thrive between their fields. Oceans—plagued by rising temperatures, depleted fish populations, and acidifying waters brought on by human activity—are no exception. New research shows that these changes to marine environments are leading to a surge of cephalopods, the invertebrate group that includes octopuses, squid, and cuttlefish.
