Cephalopods have become more and more abundant over the past 60 years, say scientists but what does that mean for the rest of the ocean. Otopus, cuttlefish, and squid since early times, tales of horror have been gone around strange sea creatures, especially the giant squid and the fearsome.
The octopus is one of the most well-recognized animals in the sea, but what about their lesser-known cousins squid and cuttlefish may not get.
Even now, both giant and colossal squid writhe throughout the deep, while 53 cephalopod species that include squid, octopuses, and cuttlefish from so most species of octopus and squid can grow up, reproduce, and die.
The octopus is a soft-bodied, eight-limbed mollusc of the order octopoda around 300 species are recognised, and the order is grouped within the class cephalopoda with squids, cuttlefish, and nautiloids.
Easily the most bizarre creature in the sea, the octopus is a cephalopod of a squid has two fins, a mantle, a head, eight arms and two tentacles, which are. And in 2010, the european union added cephalopods (octopus, squid, cuttlefish, and nautilus) to its list of protected research species.
