The Deep sea octopus is considered as an alien of deep sea waters. The octopus has lived side by side with humankind from our earliest days. An octopus is most weird and it has lot of traits compared to human. It has eight arms which help to move to its destination, Enormous eyes which targets the prey, soft boneless body which helps to escape from sailors easily. When it is attacked and putted in a tank, it tries to escape not from sailors but to target the prey in other tank. One of the most complex creatures in deep sea water is “Octopus”.

The octopus lucratively opens a screw top jar to get to its prey. A screw top jar is unlike anything that it would encounter in the wild the octopus has used cognitive reasoning, not impulse, to catch its well-merited lunch. It’s hard to judge that this animal is simply a mollusk. As far as his ancestor’s tree goes, the octopus is more closely correlated to an oyster or a snail than to any other species of animal. Off the coast of Vancouver Island, submarine divers are watched by a huge octopus, a ghost like sea creatures that lurks until it feels it’s safe to materialize and be seen.

It’s an eerie stumble upon. Marvelously, with all its powerful traits, the octopus has never become emperor of the sea. The female’s have very short life span. They give up everything, including their life, for their eggs. But this sad authenticity may also be the reason that octopuses have an innate intelligence.


Lemon sharks attract most of the people due to their color. They initially belief to be all alone but some or other they form two or three groups. They attack people from time to time. There have only been 22 reported lemon shark attacks on humans with each person surviving. They have a fascinating sensor in their nose that allows them to attract quarry and to find others to mate with. They depend on this sense of aroma because they have very meager perception. Without that sensor they would have a very rigid time surviving.lemon-shark

Food Source:

Lemon sharks nourish on various types of fish that are originate in the waters. Mainly the small prey those aren’t competent to put up much of a battle. They sometimes feed on small sharks as well. When meat can’t be voluntarily found the lemon shark will even end up feeding on mollusks and crustaceans. They don’t require a large volume of food due to their small size so they can go quite a while without feeding.

Reproduction Method:

The males and females will travel very long distances in order to find someone to mate with. Even if there are others in the area they tend to mate with those from a distance. Researchers aren’t sure what this means but they believe it with closely related males and females.

The lemon shark gives live birth to its young in the water. They may have a litter with four to about fourteen pups at a time. The females will voyage to very shallow waters before the origin occurs. This way the pups will have a good likelihood of existing. The mother will leave them as soon as they are untaught to concern for themselves.
