Octopus are cephalopods with 8 arms. They have no fins.Octopus inhabit seagrass beds in bays and coastal waters as well as coastal reefs.All octopus have a short life cycle in which each female produces 1 egg mass and dies soon after the eggs have hatched. They are solitary animals and are often very active during daylight. They live for approx. 18 months.Octopus appeared approx. 500 million years ago.By day, when hungry fishes prowl, an octopus hides in its den: under rocks, in holes or empty shells or shallow depressions on the seafloor.
