Abstract: Let $ p$ be a prime number. We show that a result of Teulié is nearly best possible by constructing a $ p$-adic number $ \xi$ such that $ \xi$ and $ \xi^2$ are uniformly simultaneously very well approximable by rational numbers with the same denominator. The same conclusion was previously reached by Zelo in his PhD thesis, but our approach using $ p$-adic continued fractions is more direct and simpler.
