From coral reefs to algal beds, mud and sand – the most intelligent mollusc can be found in all oceans and a variety of habitats. Not only is it flexible in terms of its habitat, but its structure allows it to squeeze through openings no larger than its eye.
Octopuses have an extremely highly developed nervous system which allows them to move their tentacles independent from the brain. In a way this closely resembles the arms of vertebrates – many octopuses even have a specific arm they tend to use more often (similar to humans).
The clever mollusc holds its prey firmly with its suction pads and passes it into its open mouth leaving no room for escape. The octopus acts with confidence, extreme flexibility and extraordinary precision – the same as our foreign body retrieval nets.
