The octopus is an invertebrate animal which belongs to the Mollusc group. Other animals from this group include squid and cuttlefish. Octopuses live underwater behind rocks, in crevices or in holes. Surprisingly, even though they live underwater, they are not very good swimmers. Once a baby octopus emerges from its egg it has to survive on its own and it never knows its parents. They are incredible animals. Octopuses can change shape, change colour and ‘disappear’ when they are in danger.
