but we will say that Roger Moore makes a better Octopus.
This octopus is named after the British actor and like the movie character he can perform some amazing stunts.
Tim Fulford who is studying applied biology at Brighton University, has been testing the intelligence of the animals.
He placed a jar containing food inside the tank to see if Roger could figure out how to get at it.
He cracked the problem and unscrewed the jar.
Roger Moore is believed to have the same level of intelligence as a dog.
But there is a problem - although his short term memory is excellent - his long term memory is not.
After a few days' break he often forgets what he's learned.
