The Octopus is a marine animal. It must stay in water in order to survive. Therefore, their food and their ability to eat is constant. Several resources state that the octopus likes crabs. With eight arms, they are able to catch anything that is swimming by them. With larger sea animals, the Octopus has the ability to stun the animals with his sharp horn. It is also capable of holding the victim underwater until it drowns, or can be eaten alive.
