Creature Feature: The Octopus

Octopuses inhabit diverse regions of the ocean, including coral reefs & the ocean floor. They have numerous strategies for defending themselves against predators, including the expulsion of ink & camouflage, their ability to jet quickly through the water, and their ability to hide. They trail their eight arms behind them as they swim. All octopuses are venomous, but only one group, the blue-ringed octopus, is known to be deadly to humans!

There are many varieties of Octopus in the waters of Puerto Galera, so keep your eyes peeled and see if you can spot one!
