The common octopus has eight arms, called tentacles, decorated with two rows of suckers that it uses to taste and smell. Its tentacles are linked to its head, which has two eyes and is extended by a muscular body called “the mantle”.
It breathes through gills like fish. Its mouth between the tentacles has a pair of horny mandibles in the shape of a parrot beak. The octopus uses this sharp beak to eat its prey and to defend itself.

The octopus has no skeleton and is blue-blooded. It cannot distinguish colors, but it can see clearly both near and far. If one of its arms is severed, it can grow back.
To escape from predators, the octopus has several schemes. It projects an inkjet from a special pocket that forms a cloud, takes the shape of its body, and can last for 10 minutes.
It then moves quickly by propulsion, like a jet plane, pushing back seawater through a siphon. To hide, it can also change color and cover itself with stains.
The octopus exists in all tropical and temperate seas. They live at the bottom of the sea, in individual shelters, as far away as possible from other animals. It hides in rocks or sandy bottoms up to 100 meters deep. Very homely, the octopus only comes out of its shelter to change or to look for food.
The octopus has a huge appetite and doubles its weight almost every three months. A carnivore, it feeds on crabs, crayfish, crayfish, sea snails, and bivalve mollusks.
The octopus hunts at dusk. As soon as it sees its prey, it approaches very slowly, changing color, and, thanks to its propulsion system, it throws itself on it.
It immobilizes its prey in its arms and paralyzes it with a poison secreted by its salivary glands. With its beak, the octopus will tear its victim to pieces before swallowing it.
