These bottom-dwelling sea creatures are dangerous only to their prey. If disturbed, they usually try to escape. An octopus can emit a cloud of jet-black ink ten feet high by ten feet wide by ten feet long once per minute. The cloud provides total concealment, which the octopus normally uses to escape a losing fight. All vision within the cloud is obscured. An octopus can jet backward at great speed, moving in a straight line. An octopus can change colors, allowing it hide. An octopus also can squeeze and contort its body to escape threats.[1] (MGWS 14) The ink from octopi is used for writing.[2] (LG 51)
