All / Biology / Evolution / Kingdom: Animalia / Neat Facts

Animal fact of the day:

  • Octopus’s have more than one brain. Besides the brain in their “skull” (The octopus is predominately soft bodied with the exception of them possessing a small adapted skull housed over the eye cavity to protect the brain and a beak).
  • They also have separate brain functions and neurons in EACH of their 8 tentacles.
  • In other words, they have arms that think and act completely on their own–They even remain responsive even after the octopus arms are severed)…Seriously. What!?
