Blanket Octopus Spotted in The Gulf of Mexico
This creature of the see is pretty rad. It is immune to the stings of the Man O’ War jellyfish and actually rips off the jelly fish’s tentacles and uses them as a whip. The males have a specially modified third right arm which stores sperm, known as a hectocotylus. During mating, the male octopus will detach his arm place into the mantle of the female to fertilize her eggs. The male dies shortly after mating.
A quick little doodle I drew on my commute this Wednesday! I posted it on my twitter and I like it so decided to post it here too.
Sorry for all the botw links.. I love botw Link a bit too much haha T.T
