Extraordinary members of the octopus family
Giant Pacific octopus
Found in temperate Pacific waters, these octopuses are the largest species out there; their arms can span up to around five metres.
Blue ringed octopus
At the size of a golf ball, this octopus may look adorable, but it contains enough venom – 1,000 times more powerful than cyanide – to kill 26 humans!
So named for their large ‘fins’, which resemble the disney elephant’s ears, these critters live in the deep ocean at around 4,800 metres below the surface.
