\`oc 'to`pus\ n. An eight-tentacled sea creature, belonging to the mollusk family. Uses suction cups on the underside of its tentacles to crawl around and grip prey. Has a soft shell. When frightened, squirts black ink and darts away quickly. When angered, skin flushes with pigments which turn it a reddish color. Color of octopus sometimes depends on surroundings.
I was scubadiving off the coast of Florida, and ran into an octopus, who became startled and clouded the water with its ink.
