"One hundred species of octopus are distributed throughout the seas of the world, but are especially numerous in warm seas."
"Octopus live in North Pacific, North Atlantic, off the coasts of tropical and subtropical Africa and Atlantic America and is especially numerous in the Mediterranean, and reaches the southern coasts of the British Isles." (International Wildlife Encyclopedia)
"The octopus extend its arm toward the target by a wave like propagation of a bend that travels from the base of the arm toward the tip. Octopus move by jet propulsion sucking water into a muscular sac in the mantle cavity surrounding their bodies and quickly expelling it out a narrow siphon." (www.jneurosci.org)
"Mimics are baby octopus. They are quite small growing only up to 60cm (2 feet ) long and have a body. As with all octopus, the mimic has 8 arms , a mantle containing 3 hearts and other internal organs, and a siphon used for jet propulsion." (www.divetheworld.com)
"Octopus eat small crabs , scallops, plus some snails fish, turtles, crustaceans (like shimp)
and other octpus. They catch prey with their arms, then kill it by biting it with their tough beak, paralyzing the prey with a nerve poison, and softening the flesh." (www.enchangedlearning.com)
