Group of octopuses. Octopuses (order Octopoda) are cephalopod molluscs, a type of marine invertebrate. Here, the undersides of the octopuses are seen, with eight tentacles forming a ring around the mouth. The suckers on the underside of the tentacles are used to grasp prey when hunting, and to manipulate objects. The suckers also have chemoreceptors that allow an octopus to taste what it is touching.
