Giant Pacific Octopus
Enteroctopus doflenini ON EXHIBIT:
Boneless Beauties at Ocean Journey
The giant Pacific octopus is the largest known octopus species. Like many octopi, the giant Pacific octopus has the ability to drastically change the color and texture of its skin. These abilities not only help the octopus camouflage, but they can also be used to communicate warnings to other octopi.
Octopi are intelligent and highly adaptable animals. At the Aquarium, the octopi are given puzzles to solve such as a lidded jar with a piece of food inside. The octopi quickly learn to unscrew the tops of the jars to get to the food inside.
