Default Ancient Octopus Artistry?

Did a sea monster make an artwork… out of bones?

"In one of the strangest theories to find its way out of the staid world of paleontology in a long time, researchers claim a gigantic prehistoric octopus may have made a jigsaw-puzzle-like artwork out of its victims’ bones.

As if that weren’t enough to raise eyebrows, there is more. According to the theory, the victims were not just anyone, but giant sea monsters in their own right—a tribute to the truly staggering size of the sticky assailant.

Had enough? But there is even more. The artwork was, it would seem, not just any old doodle, but a sort of Triassic self-portrait."

The design of the bones would convince me they were purposely placed in a pleasing pattern no less!
