NOT ON EXHIBIT
A two-spotted octopus spends most of the time hiding or searching for food on the seafloor. Using its arms and suckers it can slowly creep or quickly crawl. But if it's in danger, the octopus may jet away into open water. Two blue, eyelike spots on the web just below the eyes give this octopus its name.
Octopuses are very sensitive to impaired water quality. Many species live in coastal waters that receive the toxic cocktail of runoff from industry, agriculture and municipal wastes.
Females tend their eggs continuously for two to four months until they hatch.
