Dr. Adiel Klompmaker (The University of Alabama Museums‘ Curator of Paleontology) was a guest on Linnean Podcast to discuss octopuses drilling through time! Octopoda appear to be from another planet with their entirely unrelatable anatomy and way of being, yet, we are uncontrollably drawn to them. In this podcast we explore what makes them “human”, why we relate to them and discover that they are far older than we might have ever previously thought.
