me on my way to steal your man(’s skull)
Octopus have no real bones in their body, except for a tough beak made from chitin, so they can squeeze into small places when fleeing predators. They’re highly intelligent creatures and have shown to demonstrate observational learning, they’re known for escaping from their aquarium enclosures and occasionally breaking into others for a snack.
Also, captive octopi occasionally show affection to their caretakers after an extended absence.
They’re boneless puppies! <3_<3
WHAT THE FUUUUUUCKKK
More octopus facts!
- They have ARMS, not tentacles (tentacles are longer and usually only have suckers at only the tips!) and the third ARM of a male octopus serves as his reproductive organ. Yeah. Yeah I just said that and it’s for real.
- ONLY MAMMALS AND BIRDS HAVE MORE COMPLEX BRAINS THAN THE OCTOPUS!!! Thy have exquisite memory, display a wonderful ability to problem solve (unscrewing jars to get to a crab inside, opening coconut shells to hide from predators, and like the person stated earlier - escaping enclosures and turning off lights!) and get this - they literally play around just for fun with things like soccer balls
- The ones in captivity like stated above do really show affection - sometimes they even embrace their caretakers! For real!
