 Just look at that little face... No wonder then, that so many fishkeepers find these little puffers so hard to resist.

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'.
