Natural habitat of cephalopods octopus
Octopuses live in various areas of the ocean, including coral reefs, pelagic waters, and the seabed; some live in the intertidal zone and others live in the depths of the sea.
Most species grow quickly, mature early, and have a short lifespan. In most species, the male uses a specially modified arm to transport a heap of sperm directly into the female’s mantle cavity, after which she will age and die, while the female will store the fertilized eggs in the nest and will take care of them until they are born.
Why do octopuses change their colour?
Strategies to defend against predators include ejecting ink, using camouflage and threat screens, the ability to cross water and hide quickly, and even deceive. All octopuses are poisonous, but only the blue-ringed octopus is known to be lethal to humans.
Do you know that an octopus has 3 hearts?
An octopus has three hearts: one pumps blood throughout the body; the other two pump blood to the gills. The reason for this impressive cardiac hardware can be attributed to the unusual composition of your blood. Unlike vertebrates that fill red blood cells with iron-rich hemoglobin, octopuses, as well as some tarantulas, scorpions, and horseshoe crabs, directly dissolve copper-rich hemocyanin in their blood.
