The Common Octopus at SEA LIFE Brighton is the cheekiest 8 armed creature we've ever met. Octopus are very intelligent animals, in fact they are the most intelligent of all invertebrates, and are as smart as a dog! Put that together with their amazing agility and you’ve got an animal that finds it easy to escape! We have to keep our wits about us!
In the wild the common octopus eats small fish called Sprats and soft crabs. They have no bones but do have a beak in the middle of their arms which is very powerful.
