By adopting an octopus you will make a real contribution to the vital conservation work that Living Coasts does to protect marine animals.
The common octopus is typically found in tropical waters throughout the world, such as the Mediterranean Sea and East Atlantic.
The common octopus is unique for its appearance alone, with a large bulbous head, eyes, and eight distinctive arms. But the most striking characteristic of the common octopus is the wide array of techniques it uses to avoid or thwart attackers.
The first line of their defence is to hide by camouflaging itself. They achieve this through a network of pigment cells and specialised muscles that enable them to almost instantaneously match the colours and patterns of its surroundings. Concealing them from predators, such as sharks, eels, and dolphins.
