Gloomy octopuses (aka common Sydney octopuses, or Octopus tetricus) have generally been thought to be loners. But in recent years, researchers have been stumbling on sites where multiple cephalopods appear to be living together in settlements. The first site, dubbed Octopolis, was described in 2009 and considered a fluke facilitated by a human-made object. But the latest discovery of a second site, called Octlantis, off the coast of eastern Australia complicates the common view of octopuses as solitary animals. Octlantis is populated by 10-15 cephalopods who have been observed interacting with each other through posturing, chasing, and color changes--or, more forcefully, by evicting each other from dens.

Most amphibians start out in water but grow up to live on land--but not axolotls. These astonishing salamanders don’t change the way other amphibians do. They stick to their watery habitat--freshwater channels and lakes near Mexico City--their whole lives, and hang on to their larval features, including their gills, the feathery structures on either side of the head. Axolotls also have the amazing ability to regrow entire limbs. They experience no scarring, receive transplanted organs without rejecting them, and can even recover from injuries as grievous as a crushed spinal cord! Scientists are working to identify the genes involved in axolotls’ incredible regenerative abilities in hopes of one day applying what they learn to medicine.

“...When you’re doing an installation in a gallery, you have a host of works of art that are fascinating and interesting. Choosing which ones will talk to each other constructively, that a visitor who walks into that space who knows nothing about any of those artists will say, 'I know what they’re saying, I get this conversation, and I want to learn more'—That’s the goal.” 🔊 Our director Glenn Lowry shares the important role museums play in enriching public life with Monocle 24 - Radio.
