  1. What a colourful octopus, how big does it get? Looks like a little one living in a cockle shell . Posted 2 years ago
    1. In picture they always look bigger than they really are :-)
      I copy-paste this info from wikipedia:
      The main body of Amphioctopus marginatus is typically around 8 centimeters long (~15 cm including arms).
