Marine animal experts have come up with a novel way of entertaining a giant octopus at a sea life park in England - blocks of Lego.
Two year old Ollie the giant Pacific octopus, who measures five metres across, likes to hold the plastic building blocks with his tentacles, although his keepers admit he has yet to build anything recognisable.
Catherine Cservenka, who looks after Ollie at the Sea Life Park in Weymouth, Dorset, said that giant octopuses are very intelligent and like to play with toys of different shapes and textures.
"Octopuses are very intelligent so to keep them in captivity you have to keep them really occupied with different things so we give them different toys to play with basically, and Lego is one of their favourite toys," Cservenka said.
