TREE OCTOPUS.

Real or fake?

Where does the tree octopus live? How did it become endangered? How can we help save it?

The Pacific Northwest tree octopus can be found in the rain forest of the Olympic Peninsula on the west coast of North America. Their habitat lies on the Eastern side of the Olympic mountain range, adjacent to Hood Canal. These solitary hydrocephalus reach an average size of 30-33 cm. Unlike most other hydrocephalus, tree octopuses are amphibious, spending only their early life and the period of their mating season in their ancestral aquatic environment

How long can it stay out of water

Octopuses can survive out of saltwater from 30-60 minutes or so depending on atmospheric conditions. Moist and humid conditions longer and hot n dry sunshine much less! The octopus in this video was out of water for 5 minutes or so in wet conditions so it was in great shape when it returned on it's own to the sea.
