All You Need to Know about the Octopus

By | source:Here Oct 7th, 2017

The octopus is one of those creatures that looks more like it belongs in science fiction than from real life. I was always fascinated with animal life, especially with things with alot of arms.  Seems like I’d want an octupus on my side in a fight.

We all know that octupus have eight long tentacles that have suction cups on them. However, that is not the most outlandish thing on this creature. As most of you know, the octopus has an ability to completely disguise itself. I’ve spent hours on YouTube looking at the videos when octopus changes not only its colors, but also the texture of its skin. Talk about a real camouflage artist.

One fact I can tell you from personal experience is that octopuses can bite, and they’re not always harmless either.  Their venom allows them to hunt and kill.  A blue ringed octopus is one of the most dangerous.

But enough of me freaking out about octopuses.  Learn what they eat, what eats them, and their little quirks.
