The octopus (Octopoda) is a most curious creature. It has eight arms with suction pads, and three hearts. Two are gill hearts which pump blood through each of the gills, and the third pumps blood throughout the body.

great capture Phil xx
lynnI like eating them, looking at them in the wild, less so
The creature from the pink lagoon! Neat close-up, Phil!
monniesome animal! Those suction cups get to me!
Fantastic macro – good work Phil. Hope he doesn’t get a heart attack – could need a triple bypass!!!!
lezveeDroll!!! A triple by-pass, for sure!
I wonder if it gets confused enough to hug itself to death!
petewith eight arms it’s a real possibility! It sucks…….
Wonderful monochrome find and capture!
