Octopuses possess three hearts: two pump blood to the gills for oxygenation, and one circulates oxygenated blood to the body.

Octopuses can change color and texture rapidly to blend into their surroundings, making them masters of camouflage.

Octopuses exhibit advanced problem-solving skills and have been known to escape from enclosures in captivity.

Octopuses have a decentralized nervous system, with neurons in their arms, allowing for independent movement and responsiveness.

When threatened, octopuses release a cloud of ink, which confuses predators and provides an opportunity for escape.

Octopuses move by expelling water from their bodies through a process called jet propulsion.

Octopuses can regrow lost limbs, which helps them recover from injuries and defend against predators.

Octopus blood is blue because of the presence of hemocyanin, a copper-based molecule that transports oxygen.

Most octopus species have relatively short lifespans, typically ranging from one to two years.
