Aristoteles om blekksprutenes sexliv

En saftig godbit fra vitenskapshistorien:

Mollusks, such as the octopus, the sepia, and the calamary, have sexual intercourse all in the same way; that is to say, they unite at the mouth, by an interlacing of their tentacles. When, then, the octopus rests its so-called head against the ground and spreads abroad its tentacles, the other sex fits into the outspreading of these tentacles, and the two sexes then bring their suckers into mutual connexion.

Glemte jeg å si at man ikke bør la barna lese dette? Okei, nå er dere advart… :-)
