Why does an Octopus have 3 hearts, 9 brains, and blue blood:

Octopuses have 9 brains because, in addition to the central brain, each of 8 arms has a mini-brain that allows it to act independently. Octopuses have blue blood because they have adapted to cold, low oxygen water by using hemocyanin, a copper rich protein.

Are octopus friendly to humans?

Octopuses are playful, resourceful, and inquisitive. Some species cuddle with one another, while others have been known to bond with humans. They are among the most highly evolved invertebrates and are considered by many biologists to be the most intelligent.

Octopus fun facts:

An octopus can weigh between 6 and 22 pounds, have speeds of up to 25 miles per hour, and have lengths of about 1 to 3 feet.  Even though we just think of one type of octopus, there are actually around 300 different species of the animal. Generally speaking, octopuses live in every ocean, which is good news if you live next to the Atlantic or the Pacific Ocean. However, octopuses are more abundant in warm, tropical waters.

What does an Octopus eat:

Octopuses like to eat many different kinds of fish. For example, they like to eat crab, shrimp, and lobsters. Octopuses have to constantly be on the lookout for food, and when they find something worth eating, they strike.

 

What did you think? The Octopus is very intelligent, its fast, and the octopus also has an extremely soft body that can rapidly adjust its shape. This ability is important because it lets the octopus squeeze through small gaps when avoiding predators.
