Hi all,
I am completing a biology assignment for uni on the octopus vulgaris and am having a few problems with collecting some of the answers.
If any1 could help me and also give me site/journals/books to reference that would be great

How they breathe, How they digest their food, longevity and any diseases that they suffer from
Thanks heaps for this site btw, i was really stressing until i found it.

Well, I know that all octopuses have 3 hearts. I believe that they need a great deal of oxygen. For MOST octopuses, longetivity is around 1-1.5 years. Not sure about vulgaris though.

Hi Calani,

Try searching the Reference Database on CephBase. You may be able to find some of the answers you need there.

Good luck!

For some basic answers on octopus, you may want to consult a invertebrate zoology textbook or a book like "Octopus and Squid" by James C. Hunt. Your library should have at least some of this information...
