About the octopus

The octopus is generally as intelligent as a dog. It is very curious and capable of learning. The octopus often camouflages its hiding place with stones and shells and thus adapts it optimally to its surroundings. Since its blue-green blood is very thick, three hearts beat in its small body. The eight tentacles have suction cups with which it can hold on to the ground or its prey.
