We know that octopus are intelligent creatures and will often make use of all sorts of objects, and in this is rather enchanting video it's a tin can.

Robert Sontay shot this footage of a little octopus lugging its tin can 'home' around the floor of the ocean, before finally climbing into it and closing the 'door'.
