Bobby Won’t Eat Octopus at Restaurants

Everyone has their own personal preferences when it comes to eating different foods. Bobby Bones has a specific personal preference after watching a show on Netflix.

Bobby refuses to eat octopus at restaurants after watching My Octopus Teacher on Netflix. He says that show showed him how smart octopus are, so for that reason alone he doesn't ever want to consume them. Any other seafood, he's ok with eating.

That show wasn't the only thing that showed how smart octopus are, a new study came out about how octopuses and humans share genetic traits. Scientists found that two species of octopus and humans share similar "jumping genes," which they believe is associated with things like learning and memory. They say this discovery will help improve our understanding of how intelligence evolved.
