Next we have the pacific octopus. This one is not full-grown, they can grow to be up to six feet long. They're placid creatures. To hatch their eggs, the mother octopus withdraws into a cave or crevice in a rock with them, and gently fans them at all times. She doesn't eat during this time, and dies when they hatch.

Octopi are intelligent too, probably the most intelligent of all invertebrates. They can solve puzzles and use some reasoning skills.

Prints of this one are available here.
