Are Octopuses intelligent enough to open a jar of food to
get a piece of food out of it say for example a lobster?
Don't quote me on this, but I have heard of octopus's being able to get into
things like closed containers. Because of the thousands of suction cups on
their legs it would be very easy for them to open up a jar. As to if they
are smart enough, octopuses are fairly intelligent creatures, regardless
what we might think, so my inkling is to say yes, they probably would be
able to open a jar.
