Video of the week: Octopus Hunting prey

Posted by

This week’s video of the week is a fan video from Stefan Andrews of an octopus hunting and clearly changing colour.  The octopus is a Cephalopoda mollusc and has four pairs of arms rather then eight legs. Octopuses are some of the most intelligent and behaviourally flexible invertebrates.

All octopuses are actually venomous, but only the blue ringed is deadly to humans. They hunt mainly for crabs, prawns, small fish and other molluscs.

Have you had an octopus encounter?
