Octopi are ocean-dwelling cephalopods. The ink from octopi is used for writing.[1] Octopus meat takes some getting used to, but some night elves like to eat the whole thing while it's still alive. It's impossible to catch octopi with a fishing line.[2]

Mimic octopi aren't as rare as one might think because they use camouflage to hide amongst rocks and plants.[3] Even in death, mimic octopi continue changing color to blend in with their environment.[4]

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 to hide. An octopus also can squeeze and contort its body to escape threats.[5]
