Animal Sex: How Octopuses Do It
"Often considered the smartest invertebrates (animals without backbones) on the planet, octopuses can use tools, unscrew jar lids and tightly control their body color to match their surroundings."
Death by Octopus Is a Grisly Dietary Hazard for Dolphins
"A dolphin washed up dead on a beach in Western Australia. By matching its markings to a photographic database, scientists established that the male Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphin was a member of an extensively-studied population, and that it had in fact been observed and photographed since 2007."

My Google-fu has failed. Can anybody give me a citation to Aristotle talking about "the nostril of the female," or even anything close to this? I cannot find even a single mention of Aristotle using the word nostril. (And I realize that octopuses were obviously not the context of any such statement, I'm just searching for any mention of any similar statement at all.) As an avid fan of philosophy, and one who thought he'd read all English-translated works of Aristotle, i'm sincerely interested!!
Aside from that, if the "science" part of this is true, I must admit that eating one's partner is probably the most ridiculously difficult barrier to ever reproducing. WTF. Seriously, how did octopuses ever evolve in this manner.?!?!
Ugh.... Seeker you guys are wrong! I am a huge octopus aficionado. I grew up with a salt water aquarium in my house. My dad loves all things ocean and spent years setting the whole thing up with coral, a crab, an eel, and at one point an octopus. I had a pet octopus instead of a pet dog.
This video states that octopuses have 8 tentacles. This is incorrect. Tentacles are defined as being longer than arms. Squids have 6 arms and 2 tentacles. Octopuses have 8 arms. Octopuses do not have tentacles. C’mon seeker... #Sigh
reminds me abit of keanu reeves matrix in the ronin film where those chiense? cjapanese or wahtever sacrafice themselve with blade for some.. reason, HONOR?!>.. mm tho in this case atleast these guys win./..couplation ;o
If they only create 2 successful successors, HOW then are they the "weeds of the sea", or whatever Narrator-person narrated?
Also: what animal has a mission beyond procreating? Do a dog or human or kangaroo's dreams and goals beyond gene replication count for something more? How do we know that octopuses don't have such dreams beyond mating, and the following deep and inevitable post-coital depression/decline? Otherwise, what was the purpose of avoiding the immediate [and evolutionarily beneficial] death to cannibalistic mate, only to lose an arm, followed by your will to live?...
Also-also: I know she's a dangerous cannibal, but how does the female octo feel about someone slipping it into her while she's eating, or whatever? Does fear of being eaten by a potential mate justify taking away her right to sex-selection (a.k.a.- rape)???
I'd really like to see these issues hammered out in a moot. Someone get on that, and post it on Ytb.
