    The cracks and crevices of ocean rock, or the sandy ocean bottom are an octupus’ habitat. Depending on the species, some may live in temperate waters while others, like the Giant Pacific Octupus live in the Pacific Ocean. Most octopuses can be found in coastal areas, reef areas and benthic, or ocean bottom areas.

    Majority of octopuses prefer the ocean floor for their home. There are some species though that spend at least part of their lives at the surface layer of the open ocean. Areas that possess the highest concentration of octopuses are coastal areas, reef areas and benthic, or ocean bottom areas. They are found in almost every ocean in the world at almost any depth.

    The octopus is a cephalopod mollusc of the order Octopoda. Octopuses have two eyes and four pairs of arms, and like other cephalopods they are bilaterally symmetric.

    The octopus inhabits many diverse regions of the ocean, including coral reefspelagic waters, and the ocean floor.

    Lives in a hole or rock crevice in shallow water. Sometimes digs nest in gravel, or uses tentacles to construct a fortress out of rocks on the sea bed. These can often be identified by piles of discarded shells lying in the entrance.
    The octopus habitat will largely depend on the type of octopus. Most octopuses live in temperate ocean waters, with the exception of the Giant Pacific octopus which makes its home in the Northern Pacific Ocean. The majority of octopuses prefer the ocean floor for their home, although there are varieties that spend at least part of their lives at the surface layer of the open ocean. Areas in the ocean that possess the highest concentration of octopuses are coastal areas, reef areas and benthic, or ocean bottom areas.

    Octopuses live in small holes and crevices in rocks and coral. Because they have no backbone, they can squeeze themselves into spaces other animals can’t reach.
