Octopus

Octopus

The octopus is cephalopod mollusc of the order octopoda. Octopuses have two eyes and four pairs of arms and, like other cephalopods, they are bilaterally symmetric. An octopus has a hard beak, with its mouth at the center point of the arms. Octopuses have no internal or extemal skeleton which allow them to squeeze through tight places.

  1. Love this! Had two encounters with these creatures on a single dive in July. Shy, but also curious. Looking one in the eye, you KNOW s/he is looking back!
