Cool facts about octopuses:
- Young octopuses learn almost no behaviors from their parents. Why? Dads die shortly after mating, and moms die within weeks or months after their eggs hatch.
- The typical life span of an octopus is between 3–5 years.
- They are highly intelligent. Maze and problem-solving experiments have shown evidence of a memory system that can store both short- and long-term memory.
- They have soft bodies, with no internal or external skeleton, so they can squeeze into impossibly small cracks and crevices.
- Though octopuses can be difficult to keep in captivity, some people keep them as pets. They often escape even from supposedly secure tanks, due to their problem-solving skills, mobility, and lack of rigid structure.
- Mimic octopuses are capable of changing their body shape to mimic other animals.
- Octopuses have four pairs of arms. If they lose an arm to escape a predator's grasp, they can re-grow it later with no permanent damage.
- All octopuses are venomous, but only the small blue-ringed octopuses are known to be deadly to humans.
