Kids will love spending time coloring this free printable cute octopus coloring pages resource. The marine world can be quite interesting due to the diversity of fish and other organisms, and octopus is amongst them, which consists of about 300 species in the world.

It is an oceanic creature with a bulb-like head and eight arms with suction cups. These cups help the octopus in mobility and attach itself to its prey, such as crabs, mollusks, and crayfish.


The body of an octopus is boneless, and therefore it can squeeze anywhere, even in tight spaces. It can also change its color to blue, grey, green, pink, or brown to cover, and match its surroundings, to protect itself from predators.

This aquatic creature lives near the water's surface in reefs, cracks, and crevices. Some species stay on the ground of the ocean, making their houses out of caves.

They are common in the Mediterranean sea, Atlantic sea, Southern coast of England, and Southern Coast of South Africa. Did you know?

An octopus has blue-colored blood, unlike other animals with mostly red blood. It also has three hearts.
