Description

With no bones and no nose, octopuses use their eight long arms for touching, smelling and even tasting While some are as small as a paper clip, others can grow to the length of three doors. These intelligent animals enjoy living by themselves and eating a lot of seafood -- crabs, scallops and fish. Filled with amazing facts and color photographs, this book provides a fascinating look at the undersea world.

"About the series: " Each book in the Welcome to the World of Series introduces children to wildlife through color photographs, lively description and amazing facts.
