Octopus Facts


The largest octopus weighs about 15kg (Octopus dofleini). An Octopus has three hearts and it can squeeze through a hole the size of a 10-cent coin. Hapalochlaena species can inject enough venom in one bite to kill several adult humans. They can adopt a two-tentacles "walk" that frees up their six remaining limbs and makes them look like an armed vehicle.

Too bad they live only for five years, maximum. Those who hate Paul - should just get him married, sex is lethal for octopus, they die immediately after.

Just to add onto stephs previous comment....

We got into underwater marine life when in south africa when we went swimming with sharks. they didnt even try to attack us. we are such naturals when with animals.

We would compare ourselves with Dr D Dolittle. As we have a gift with sealife and can often talk to them.

Its the most incredible thing.
