Octopus can live in any of the world’s oceans. The most common octopus, the O. Vulgaris, is found in the tropical and temperate seas around the world. The octopus is mostly found in the lower depths of the ocean. They usually camouflage with their surroundings at the bottom of the ocean. The small octopus will build a home out of clam shells, or even carry around a half of a coconut shell to use as shelter. Larger octopus will hide in dark underwater caves.
The amazing species can vary in size from two inches to twenty-three feet. The octopus has eight legs, and can have an arm span of almost 30 feet. The body is described as a bag-like body, with a large head and eight legs with suckers on them to help them grip to their surroundings. The colors of the octopus can changed based on its surroundings or even its mood. If the octopus becomes scared it will eject a black ink like substance to hide it while it moves away.
