The Southern White-faced Owl has a couple of creepy transformations, but it’s got nothing on the Mimic Octopus. This strange cephalopod can copy the look of 15 species, from snakes to shrimps.
One lucky dude already has a copy of Gran Turismo 5, and uploaded the opening cinematic, a 7 minute-long affair that opens with what is practically a mini-documentary on car-making.
