Stuck in Monotonous? Try Octopus Mosaics! December 07 2021 Blue Water Pool Mosaics Ho hum, humdrum, dull, boring: these words mean “monotonous,” but they do not describe octopus mosaics. There’s nothing monotonous about an eight-legged creature of the sea; perhaps that’s why they are so fascinating. While it’s hard to fathom, an octopus has nine brains; the central brain and a brain in each leg, allowing them to function separately. The independent brains could account for the legs moving in different directions, almost like a puppet dancing in the water. Using tools is a sign of mental acuity, and octopuses are some of the most intelligent life forms on the planet. What Makes the Octopus So Cool? Are you thinking about keeping an octopus as a pet? You can, but you should check if it is legal in your state. But before you go out to catch one or buy one, be warned: octopuses are escape artists. Octopuses are nocturnal prowlers who sneak out of their tanks, traveling to a nearby water source at night to gobble up its inhabitants, which means if you own more than one aquarium, don’t be surprised to find your fish on the octopus’s menu. Reports have it that octopuses sometimes wind up on fishing boats searching for food. Generally, octopuses travel along the ocean floor, but when hunting, they float near the top of the water, ready to drop down on top of their prey. While octopuses do not typically attack humans, it is best to create distance between you because they will spray ink if they take exception to you. All are venomous and experts at reaching out and grabbing their prey, holding it with its suction cups, and reeling it in. Can you imagine encountering a giant octopus, unable to break free from the gripping suctions? It’s why monster movies are legendary. No wonder ancient mythology had octopuses as sea monsters. With 300 species, the entertainment is plentiful! From plush stuffed animals and knitted toys to starring in the movies, there’s no shortage of love for these wiggly-legged beings. Fossil evidence shows that the existence of the octopus dates back some 509 million years. Like the octopus, mosaics have a long history, and there’s nothing monotonous about them. Both the octopus and mosaics have much in common: They Are Colorful Octopuses are like salamanders; they can change their color to camouflage and match their surroundings, and since they are loners, they like to be incognito. They can be red, brown, blue, pink, and even gray. The paler the color, the more agreeable, but when the octopus turns black, watch out – it’s not happy.
