Like diamonds, diatoms are forever. These mesmerizing algae are among the most common types of phytoplankton in our oceans. They are producers within the oceanic food web and feed all of the above organisms.

Octopus Fun Fact #4: Camouflage Master! An octopus can change the color of its entire body in just three-tenths of a second. But the creature doesn't simply take on the general pattern of its surroundings. Instead, it often mimics specific undersea objects, like plants or rocks, to disappear into the underwater scenery.

“True” baby eels, such as the Moray eel, are transparent, ribbon-like larvae called leptocephali, meaning “slim head”. Pictured here is an unusually large Moray eel larva of about 300-400 mm long (over 1 foot) in the upper photo and a full grown Moray eel in the lower photo. #marinelife #science #funfact #worldoceansday #conservation #celebrateourocean #morayeel #eel #sealife #ocean

Octopus Fun Fact #3: Octopus are among the smartest non-primates on the planet; they take the cake for invertebrates. Experiments in maze and problem-solving have shown that they have both short-term and long-term memory. Octopuses can open jars, squeeze through tiny openings, and hop from cage to cage for a snack. They can also be trained to distinguish between different shapes and patterns. In a kind of play-like activity one of the hallmarks of higher intelligence species octopuses have been observed repeatedly releasing bottles or toys into a circular current in their aquariums and then catching them. The octopus is the only invertebrate which has been shown to use tools. At least four specimens have been witnessed retrieving discarded coconut shells, manipulating them, and then reassembling them to use as shelter.

Octopus Fun Fact #2: Did you know octopuses have venom? All octopuses are thought to have some venom that comes from bacteria living inside the animals. Most don't have enough poison to harm people. But a bite from certain octopus, such as a small blue-ringed octopus, can paralyze a human adult in minutes.

Octopus Fun Fact #1: Everyone knows that octopuses have eight sucker-covered arms, but did you know that man-made suction cups pale in comparison to natural ones that cover the undersides of octopus arms? A common octopus has about 240 suckers on each limb, and a particularly large sucker can hold up to 35 lbs. The suckers are also extremely sensitive; they can pick up subtle chemical signals and move individually, even folding in half in a pinching gesture.

Did you know walruses change COLOR?! Walruses are generally grayish-brown in color, but their coloration changes when thermoregulating (controlling their body temperature). When in cold water, walruses have the ability to contract their outer blood vessels, reducing the blood flow to the skin and blubber, saving heat in the process. This is when the walrus appears almost white. Conversely, when they are basking in the sun and warming up, the blood vessels dilate. Blood is pumped to its blubber and skin where it gets warmed by the sun. This increase in blood circulation gives them a more reddish color. Photo by Hal Brindley.

Did you know? Unlike most fish that have gas-filled “swim bladders” to help control their buoyancy, sharks have large livers, that can account for up to 30% of their body mass, which produce oil to keep them buoyant, instead.
