Tree Octopus

Who Knew?

Where it lives

The tree octopus lives in temperate rain forests of North America. It uses the trees to transport itself to safety, to shelter, and/or food just like a monkey.

How it Lives

Tree octopuses feed on insects, small animals, and other things that it can find. Who knew that something that we would usually think lives deep in the ocean lives high in the trees.

Protecting the Eggs!

Once two octopuses mate the male leaves the female and it is her job to protect the eggs. This may seem like a selfish thing to by letting the female do all the work, but it's just the way things work out in the North America rain forests, but like I said before who knew? Just BTW I do believe that the tree octopus is a real thing.
