Cyanea Octopus in "The Great Escape!"

Because of their advanced problem-solving skills, dexterous mobility, and lack of a rigid skeletal structure, octopuses have the unique talent of being able to fit through tiny spaces. In this video, a 600 pound Cyanea Octopus wriggles it's way through an opening no bigger than a quarter! The footage is very high quality, offering a detailed view of the slippery tentacles as they maneuver through a clear plastic tube, and the narration is pretty darn informative. Enjoy:
