The Blanket Octopus
Today for lest weeks Fishy Friday,I'm going to tell you about the Blanket Octopus.
Not much is known about the Blanket Octopus,so I will try and report what I can.
The Blanket Octopus is one of the most stunning species of Cephalopods ever found(My moms personal favorite.).They get their name from the very long webs hanging from their tentacles.They generally come in 2 colors:Scarlet red and lemon yellow.I do not know what they eat,but I'm going to guess small fish and other small octopi and squids.they have a very odd way of defending themselves,so I hear.Its said that they take the arms of the poisonous Portugese Man O' War Jellyfish (Talk about well explainitory names.) and waving them around,using them as a weapon.They are found in the North and South Atlantic Ocean.
That's my report on the Blanket Octopus.I got the info from www.ask.com and the pictures from free Google images.The End.
