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.

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...
