Octopus Characteristics

Octopuses belong to the order of the octopods, a name given because it has eight movable limbs that allow them to protect themselves, swim or capture prey. After all, this animal is a predator.

This mollusk is the most intelligent of all those known to date. The variety of species is diversified from those measuring 15 cm to 9 meters. 

Octopus has attracted man’s attention since the origins of the exploration of underwater life, mainly because of its imitative or mimetic capacity.

The cells found in the skin of the octopus have pigments known as chromatophores. The function is to change the appearance and color of the animal instantly when it is in dangerous situations and also to increase its performance in hunting.

Octopus Feeding

Octopuses are mainly omnivorous, and they can feed on many things, including other mollusks, fish, and small crustaceans or algae. 

To do this, they entangle their prey with their tentacles and bring it up to their horny beaks to tear it apart. Essentially, octopuses are predators.

Octopus Habitat

Octopuses are found in all oceans, mainly in coral reefs and other areas that allow them to hide and provide them with a diversity of smaller animals for food. 

Octopuses inhabit temperate or warm waters at different depths and adapt to various predation strategies, although they usually vary their environment immediately within two to three weeks.

Breeding octopuses in captivity is a difficult task because it generally minimizes the life expectancy of the octopus, which is very adept at escaping in challenging conditions. For this reason, it is preferred to use other species for breeding, such as squid.

Octopus Reproduction

Octopuses are sexed, meaning that there are females and males. The fertilization of the males to the females is done by introducing the third right arm into the female’s body, which is not a tentacle but a reproductive organ known as hectocotylus, which deposits spermatophores in the female that are used for fertilization.

After this, the female retires to her cave and leaves the eggs in the form of a cluster, about 150,000. She will stay in this place for a month to protect them, without consuming food until the hatching and the young are born.
