    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...
