Giant octopuses are often thought to have the supernatural ability to predict the future. Yes, not infrequently these animals are believed to be able to guess the winner of the World Cup.
The Giant Pacific Octopus comes from the North Pacific Ocean. The color is reddish but can change at any time when adjusting to conditions. He has three hearts and nine brains!
The female can lay up to 20,000 to 100,000 eggs. While guarding the eggs, the female does not eat at all, in fact she will die after the eggs hatch for 150 days to a year. Depends on the ambient temperature.
“Unique fact, the Giant Octopus has blue blood, due to the fusion of copper atoms in the Hemocyanin molecule. In invertebrates they use hemocyanin to transport oxygen to the blood, because it is blue in color. In comparison, mammals like humans, hemoglobin transports O2 to the blood, because of this substance. iron is in the atom, that’s why our blood is red,” said curator of the Jakarta Aquarium, Aaron Morgan.
“Did you know? The Giant Octopus has 9 brains! Yes, it is very smart and must be continuously stimulated to stay healthy. That’s why we have to keep their mind and curiosity constantly on track. Visitors can donate toys to them of safe origin, which are made of from non-toxic materials, light in color, and has a texture,” said Aaron.
