How can octopus protect themselves?



  1. 0 Votes

    Octopi are highly intelligent for one, so often they will outsmart their attacker, rather than engage in physical altercation. They are able to straighten their bodies out and become very thin, which allows them to escape into very small cracks. They are also equipped with the means of jet propulsion, so they can dart quickly across the water if need be. If it must, an octopus is very strong, and its eight tentacles can be used to defend itself against smaller predators. It also has an ink sac, and will squirt ink into the eyes of its predators, allowing the octopus to escape in the confusion. Finally, most octopus are able to camouflage themselves and hide from attackers.
