There are octupus in the waters around Sweden, but they are uncommon and very rarely found creeping on the beach. The octupus is an intelligent, active and emotional creature. It can change colour according to its humour.

Certain octupus swim about in the water, while others mostly roam about on the bottom with their tentacles. Many octupus can squirt ink.
