“World Octopus Day celebrates one of the most distinctive creatures living on the planet today. Octopuses are worthy of appreciation for a number of reasons:
- Fossil records indicate they’ve been around for more than 300 million years (they pre-date dinosaurs)
- They’re highly intelligent with a brain in each arm
- Visually stunning in a variety of shapes and colors”
