We have been doing lots of art while we have been learning about many different sea creatures. We have learnt lots about the Giant octopus. They live for about three years. After the female lays her eggs she has to stay with them. She needs to cover them and defend them against would-be predators. She needs to gently waft currents over them so they get a constant supply of fresh, oxygenated water. And she does this continuously, never leaving and never eating. Octopuses are masters of camouflage that can change their shape, colour and texture to perfectly blend into their environment. We have really enjoyed learning about Giant octopus.
