    Otto the Octopus Wrecks Havoc - Telegraph “At the Sea Star Aquarium in Coburg, Germany, Otto the octopus became annoyed by the bright light shining into his aquarium and discovered he could extinguish it by climbing onto the rim of his tank and squirting a jet of water in its direction, short-circuiting it. “Aquarium staff also caught him juggling the hermit crabs in his tank.” Photo: EUROPICS

Octopi are so beautiful. When I'm rich someday, I'll have one as a pet in a huge saltwater aquarium.

Octopuses have 2 eyes and 4 pairs of arms and are bilaterally symmetric. An octopus has a hard beak, with its mouth at the center point of the arms. Octopus lack an internal or external skeleton allowing them to squeeze through tight places. Octopuses are among the most intelligent and behaviorally flexible of all invertebrates.

Octopus vulgaris, wouldn't this be the ultimate front door knob? Cast in copper or bronze. Love the way his tentacles could be where you grab to pull open.

Octopuses also have an excellent sense of touch. An octopus's suction cups are equipped with chemoreceptors so the octopus can taste what it is touching.

the deep ocean. Octopus legs look like roots of a tree...Kinda interesting that the function of the tentacles on those legs are similar to those of a root of tree.
