Octopus
by Aniket Kumar

  • A dime has 118 ridges around the edge

  • A cat has 32 muscles in each ear.

  • A dragonfly has a life span of 24 hours.

  • A snail can sleep for three years.

  • In the last 4,000 years, no new animals have been domesticated.

Funda of Fundas

The octopus has a highly developed nervous system. Its eyes are like ours and it has the largest and most advanced brain of any invertebrate. Captive octopuses have been known to wait for nightfall to sneak out and steal fish from neighboring tanks! Like their close relative the cuttlefish, some octopuses use color for camouflage, to startle predators, and also to reflect their mood. The mimic octopus is a master of disguise.
