Natural World: The Octopus In My House
With its three hearts, blue blood and boneless body, the octopus is the closest we may get to meeting an alien. They evolved from a common cousin more than 500 million years ago. But they're also intelligent creatures, with proven problem-solving abilities. So what happens when you invite an eight-legged alien into your living room? This film follows marine biologist David Scheel as he tracks his complex, evolving relationship with his own octopus. Using Davids first-person narrative, and linking his discoveries to octopus stories from all over the world, the film offers an insight into the extraordinary intelligence and behaviour of these incredible creatures.

Welcome to BBC EARTH! The world is an amazing place full of stories, beauty and natural wonder. Here you'll find 50 years worth of entertaining and thought-provoking natural history content. Dramatic, rare, and exclusive, nature doesn't get more exciting than this.
