Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo, one of the world’s largest and most diverse aquarium, is now home to a Giant Pacific Octopus. Giant Pacific Octopuses (Enteroctopus dofleini) are found in the North Pacific Ocean and is the largest species among Octopus, reaching 4.3 meters in height and weighing more than 70 kg. The GiantPacific Octopus has almost no bones allowing it to slip into very tight crevices to reach for food or hide from predators. Its head contains all vital organs including three hearts, while the rest of the body essentially constitutes eight arms. They have excellent eyesight and can taste with their tentacles. Being one of the most intelligent invertebrates, they can work out puzzles and will remember a route through a maze after only a couple of attempts. They are also masters in disguise, being able to change colour and texture of their skin using specialised skin cells.
Prawns, crabs, squid and octopus are just as packed with vitamins, minerals and fish oils as fish like salmon or cod. What’s especially worth highlighting is that they all contain Omega-3, a key fatty acid known to help with heart health. CLOSE UP ON SEAFOOD HEALTH BENEFITS 1. SEAFOOD IS LOW IN FAT […]
