Which creature has three hearts, eight arms and a doughnut shaped brain?
You guessed it, it’s the octopus!
Octopus are molluscs which means they are from the same phylum (or family) as Slugs and Snails as well as Cuttlefish and Squid. They are well known for being very clever. In fact, they are one of the most intelligent invertebrate species (that means animals with no backbone). Generally, Octopuses are solitary creatures that hunt at dusk. They eat all manner of things from crabs to crayfish and even other molluscs.
