    "sp." refers to "Species". Doesn't mean anything specific. Could be anything.

    yeah, really - it can be anything at all...

    If you get tempted by Octopus sp. then ask if you can see a pic first. It could be a fully grown dwarf, a baby giant or even a dangerous species like blue ring

    They inhabit the same waters, therefore the same temperature waters. From everything I've read they are very similar and I would imagine that would include behavior.
