The Coconut Octopus

The coconut Octopus adapts into its habitat in many ways.

The Coconut Octopus protects itself in many different ways, for an example, the Coconut Octopus carry's coconut and clam shells across the ocean floor to make fortresses for protection. Not only, but also, when the coconut octopus is a baby, it can even be found hiding in a bottle cap.

The Coconut Octopuses diet usually includes, shrimp, crabs, clams, and fish. When the Coconut Octopus hunts its prey, it ejects it with a paralyzing saliva before breaking them down into tiny peices with its beak.

The Coconut Octopus can usually be found in the sandy bottoms of bays and lagoons so that if it can not find a clam or coconut shell to hide in, it can just bury itself in the sand with only it's eyes showing.

Coconut Octopuses blend in with their surroundings in many unique ways.
