Wunderpus Photogenicus, a spectacular octopus with a terrific name has long arms, small eyes on elongated stalks and a pattern which is unique to each individual. #Octopus #Wunderpus_Photgenicus >> How can something this amazing barely ever be seen!?! WOW!

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.

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.
