" Many people think octopuses have eight legs, but those are not legs. Their tentacles are actually arms. Thay have a strange anatomy, with their head located between their body and arms. The flexible arms are perfect for catching all kinds of crab, shrimp, and shellfish, especially in reefs. When attacked by predators octopuses emit a black ink that spreads through the water. This greatly reduces visibility and allows them to escape, making them highly skilled at disappearing. "
