Two Spotted Octopus
The two spotted octopus is armed but not dangerous. Like all octopuses they have eight arms. These arms can spread to one meter each, but most specimens are smaller. Their colors can be combinations such as gray, gray-brown, red-brown, and black. Their colors change not so much for blending into their backgrounds but it shows their mood. The two spotted octopus will feed on almost anything, but prefers crabs of any species. The two spotted octopuses ink has a special chemical that ruins the smell of the moray, a bony fish. The moray is the natural enemy of the two spotted octopus.
