An octopus has eight arms covered in suckers. They are known as "arms" rather than "tentacles" because tentacles only have suckers at the tip. An octopus has powerful suckers along the length of its limbs, helping the octopus to grip,
touch, and taste. Because octopuses don't have bones, they can squeeze through an opening as small as a £1 coin!
