Octopi Only Have Two Legs.

Sure, this little Octopus appears to have 8 legs. But if you’re to define limbs by how they’re used, an Octopus only has 2. They use their back 2 tentacles to propel themselves along the sea bed. They use their other tentacles (the 6 arms) for feeding and other tasks.

Another interesting fact about Octopi:
They contain about 2/3 of their brain in their tentacles. Because of this, a severed tentacle can crawl around and in some species it would be able to survive for several months! Wouldn’t that be a strange thing to come across while scuba diving.

Check out these Octopi for weird!
