It seems like throwing trash at one another is not behavior isolated to politicians. Scientists in Australia have witnessed wild octopuses throwing sand and shells at each other in a series of videos. This is previously unrecorded behavior and the researchers believe that it is intentional.
The rather gloriously named gloomy octopuses (Octopus tetricus) were caught in the act off the coast of Jervis Bay in New South Wales, Australia. Scientists analyzed 24 hours of footage filmed across several days and found 102 instances of the behavior in 10 different animals.
