What is a tree octopus baby called?
Baby tree octopi would be called hatchlings or larva. As many as 200,000 eggs are hatched by a female octopus. Unfortunately the soft eggs are designed to survive in seawater, receiving oxygen through their porous shells. On land, no little tree octopi would hatch. The amphibious tree octopus is, actually, a 1998 website hoax intended to parody ecological movements. The species is entirely fictional.
