I Wouldn't Want Chemoreceptors in My Arms...

Octopus are extremely intelligent cephalopods that are known for their problem-solving abilities. They have eight suction-cupped arms(not tentacles) that have chemoreceptors in them- that means that they can taste whatever they're touching! The only hard part in their body is their beak, so they can squeeze through tiny openings and maneuver easily through corrals and coves. One of my favorite tricks of the octopus is their ability to camouflage completely! I just found this amazing video on YouTube: Click here to check it out.
