Be sure to turn your sound on for this video so you can listen to the scientists totally nerd out about their discovery and try to quote Taylor "Smith" in the process. (I think they meant Swift...)

Scientists have recently analyzed a full octopus genome and found that their DNA is unlike anything else on Earth. With lots of genes packed densely together and genes that would normally group together being spread out through the genome, they have said that the octopus is basically an alien. Of course, anyone who's seen a sci-fi movie could have told you that just by looking them.
