This Atlantic white spotted octopus coloring pages resource features a white-spotted octopus, showcasing its eight legs and a bulbous head. The Atlantic white-spotted octopus is known to live in the Atlantic Ocean, in the Mediterranean sea, and in the Caribbean Sea in the shallower and warm part of the ocean. They are deep orange in color and are covered in white spots all over their body. They live on colorful corals, which helps them camouflage their bodies and eat any water animals that come next to these corals. They eat the insects that live on these corals but attack small fish for their diet too. As a baby, these octopuses are known to live on the plankton that grows in the water. When any other animal disturbs these octopuses or poses a threat, these animals turn intense red in color to scare away the other animals.
