Octopus is known as Octopod, being a cephalopod mollusk endowed with eight tentacles. It has a flexible body, without shell to protect it, allowing it to move quickly and hide easily to escape from its predators.
They inhabit rocky bottoms in the coastal areas, between rocks and stones in depths less than 200 m. In winter, they begin to approach the coast to reproduce and remain in the coast until spring.
It is an animal that blends with its surroundings and ejects a jet of black ink by its propellant to prevent attack.
Octopus is very popular in several countries. It provides selenium, potassium, phosphorus, iron and vitamin B, among other nutrients.
