Word of the Day: Octopus

Octopodes are some of the coolest creatures of the sea. Not sure if I remember seeing a real one, but I still think they’re quite neat! I’d hate to sit here and do Wikipedia’s (or to be honest, anyone capable of writing about this’) job so I just wanted to write a little bit about octopuses.

Oct apart of a order called octopoda and are mollusks (I didn’t know that).
