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
I remember hearing a while ago that if its beak can fit through its entire body can
another fun fact, if octopi in captivity get too bored they just stop eating untill they die, thats why you always see them with childrens toys in their aquariums or boxes they have to open
thats also why they try to break out to go somewhere else more interesting
And this is why they are my favorite creatures in the sea.
first, they stick a tentacle through an opening to gauge its size. If an opening is too small for their beak (which they seem to know without ever having seen their own beak), they don’t even try to get out.
Cephalopods are intelligent to a degree that we can’t quite get a handle on (perhaps we can’t bring ourselves to get a handle on it) because invertebrates??? It is endlessly fascinating.
