What does an octopus feel like?
Cephalopods, including octopuses, are mollusks. They’re close cousins to slugs, snails, mussels and scallops. An octopus is a little like a normal mollusk turned inside-out. It has a soft body, and its shell has been reduced to two small plates where its head muscles anchor, plus a powerful, parrot-like beak.
Octopuses feel slightly squishy, but also quite strong and muscley. They also feel velvety and slippery at the same time. Their suction cups are really strong and grippy!
