Octopus are prey for sperm whales and other whales, moray and konger eels, dolphins and sharks. And humans, notably in Japan and Southeast Asia.
Whales eat octopus [sperm whales have giant octopus as a favorite food]. Octopus eat each other octopus. Humans eat octopus. Anything that can catch an octopus (that isn't easy) will eat it. Killer whales [or Orcas, a kind of toothed whale] eat octopuses.
Octopuses eat small crabs and scallops,plus some snails, fish, turtles and other octopuses. adult octopi eat crabs, clams, snails, small fish and even other smaller octopi. they use small parrot like beaks to crush their pray.
I saw this real life movie and the octopus jump ot and grab the shark around the body. The octopus was wrapping it really hard.
The octopii eat chicken and squid. Sometimes they taste like chicken too. Special divers dive down with chickens to feed them. It's a long process but very useful.
you will need to feed them pieces of scallop,crab legs,oysters also gut loaded ghost shrimp,brine shrimp,blood worms and snails.
Dolphins have been known to eat octopus, squid, and other type ofsea life, including different types of fish. They may also eatseals or sea lions.
It eates by using its beak to crack open shells of crabs or other animals with shells
An octopus eats by catching its prey in its arms, then killing it by biting it with a kind of beak they have
Octopii are eaten by humans. They are eaten also by squids, as in Captain Nemo's 20000 Leagues under the Sea.
I don't know for certain if squid can eat octopus..but, it is known and documented that some species of octopus prey and feed on other octopus...so it would seem that large octopus would probably eat smaller squid and large squid would probably eat small octopus ( if they are caught and available) i…n the area they are hunting in. About two years ago, a Japanese scientist and film maker recorded a giant squid with a tentacle caught on their hook that I believe had fish bait? It could have been octopus bait? whatever it was, it was FREE FOOD for the squid ( which dropped the tentacle to get free of the hook). *A rule of thumb," Most animal consumers will hunt and prey on animal food that is easily caught. They tend to hunt prey they do not have to fight hard with since there are a 'lot of fish in the sea'." (smile) Marjorie Anne Wallace, science teacher (MORE)
I dont know why an octopussy would eat an dolphinny, but most likely it ate it because it was REALLY hungry... and viscous (:
they eat crustaceans and zooplankton octopuses eat more than just that. They eat fish and crab plankton and more then I can name. They don't JUST eat crustaceans and zooplankton. People I am a expert on octopus and I still go the school.

because they like the citricness woooooooooooooooooooo because they like the citricness woooooooooooooooooooo because they like the citricness woooooooooooooooooooo
I've heard that they emit a black powder-like gas in the ocean to confuse/blind their prey, and attack! Recently, I read on the newspaper that if they're really, really hungry, they'll even eat one of they tentacles! No kidding, they do regenerate.
To kill it you bite/stab/smash its brain between the eyes, immediately killing it. The octopus skin then turns white when its dead. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TGIDa0J4Zn4&feature=related To cook, you can batter it like calamari...boil, then roll in flour, and cook in hot oil. Or, you can b…oil it and eat with salt, limu seaweed and green onions. (MORE)
octopuses eat shellfish,snails,turtles, especially crabs. The suction helps the octopus grab its food. Octopuses eat only once or twice everyday.
Their diet typically consists of small crab and shrimp, but they may also feed on fish if they can catch them. They pounce on their prey, paralyze them with venom and use their beaks to tear off pieces. They then suck out the flesh from the crustacean's exoskeleton.
Humans can eat pufferfish, but not all of it. Fugu, what we know as pufferfish, is a delicacy in Japan. Lisenced resturants that serve pufferfish also specialize in the removal of the fish's deadly poison. If left unremoved the fish could be the last meal for up to thirty adults.
No, Octopuses eat small crabs and scallops, plus some snails, fish, turtles, crustaceans (like shrimp ), and other octopuses. They catch prey with their arms, then kill it by biting it with their tough beak, paralyzing the prey with a nerve poison, and softening the flesh. They then suck out the …flesh. Octopuses hunt mostly at night. Only the Australian Blue-ringed octopus has a poison strong enough to kill a person. I once saw a programme where sharks were going missing in an aquarium, it turned out to be an octopus catching and eating them, but no, the do not eat plankton. (MORE)
The octopus is a hunting carnivore, much like a tiger in the jungle. Depending on the size and species of the octopus they will eat fish, sharks, clams, and much more.
No. But they will harm any unknown thing that comes near it. it is unlikely.
Answer . Yes . If it is not eaten properly, its legs can choke you by clogging your wind pipe. . Answer . No, it is great food. In Italy it is called calamari and is served all the time in great restaurants all over the world. In Japan it's called tako, and is eaten raw.
I'm sure they would if they could but it is usually the other way around.
A giant octopus can eat one if they can catch one, because they can eat sharks too.
it depends how old the octopus is and how old the shark is also how the animal is
No special way. They have a beak-like mouth at the center of where the arms come together.
People eat the Dumbo Octopus in Japan in any town its a popular dish in Japan.I would recomend going to Japan for it,your welcome for the answer.
In nature octopi are eaten by sharks and other large fish. People also enjoy octopus as food.
I cant really explain how much it eats a day but I can explain whatit eats and its size: The diet of the puffer fish is mostly invertebrates and algae.Large specimens will even crack open and eat clams,mussels, andshellfish. Its size can be up to 3 feet.
No.They eat a tiny sea creatures - krill or plankton. An Adult bluewhale can eat up to 40 million creatures per day - that's nearly3500 kilograms of it.. They need 1.5 million kilocalories of energyper day and so, they eat nonstop.
There are no monkeys native to the US Pacific Northwest. The tree octopus is said to live exclusively in the forests of western Washington state. The main threat to the tree octopus was from another primate, the Sasquatch, which were said to feed on it. Of course, Sasquatch may not exist, and the t…ree octopus certainly does not. The Pacific Tree Octopus is a fictional creature created by hoaxsters in 1998 as a parody of ecological websites. Some individuals do still occasionally think the website is a real one. (MORE)
Adult Octopi eat small crabs, clams, snail, small fish, and in some cases other octopi.
Even though this is the second most toxic vertebrate to humans, the meat can be eaten if it is prepared very carefully by a trained chef. In fact its a delicacy in Japan and Korea.
From http://www.answers.com/topic/tetraodontidae-2 . Puffer poisoning usually results from consumption of incorrectly prepared puffer soup, fugu chiri or occasionally from raw puffer meat, http://www.answers.com/topic/fugu . While chiri is much more likely to cause death, sashimi fugu o…ften causes intoxication, light-headedness, and numbness of the lips, and is often eaten for this reason.. (MORE)
Yes, they eat hermit crabs, crabs, lobster and even other octopi. Crab and lobster are their favorites!
You bet! It is a common cuisine in Mediterranean dishes and is called calamari. It is often deep fried. Octopus salad is an oriental delicacy. It is also served as sushi. Actually, calamari is squid, but octopus is still enjoyed in many parts of the world.
Some species of octopus can kill a human, but will only do this if the feel threatened. They can bite you but they cannot eat you.
Many chefs who cook the puffer fish know more than anyone. The puffer fish contains loads of toxic stuff and could kill someone if it wanted to!! . I don't think any do. The puffer fish is extremely poisonous. .
well, an octopus has a diet that consists of small fish, snails, crabs, and clams. they can squeeze all of the liquids in their prey out. then after they flush the liquids out, they slowly eat it through the mouth that is underneath it's body
It could if the snake did not know it was there, and it depends on the octopus size. If the snake wrapped around the octopus to eat, the octopus can grab its head and attack it back.
It can if the octopus was lying in the tidepool and the bird approached the octopus. It depends how big is the octopus also.
Although it may seem like a bad idea to some people, it is ok toeat the ink of an octopus. Not alone however. You should it withsome form of meat.
Sperm Whales just swallow these things. They usually own sharks but sometimes sharks own them. Squids have been known to be carnivores and eat these too.
Negative; not any octopus that I have ever heard of. Bottom-dwelling octopuses main source of food is crabs, polychaete worms, and other molluscs such as whelks and clams. As for open-ocean octopuses, they eat mainly prawns, fish and other cephalopods.
Yes. The tiger shark can eat almost anything that lives in the ocean, and is smaller than the tiger shark is, and it can certainly eat an octopus.
first they rip the head off the octopus then they suck out the juices by moving their mouths up and down the octopus
It grabs its prey with its tenticles and puts its prey in its mouthwitch is located under its tenticles
Yes they can killand eat sharks and this octopus is verybig in size and it is easy for him to catch and eat sharks
