Example 2

The Octosquid is one of the rarest sea creatures in the ocean. This
obscure creature favours habitats such as the cavernous depths of the
ocean bed and isolated sea caves.


The Octosquid is a carnivore and hunts for its favourite diet of small
sharks, new born turtles, eels and fish. It usually glides across the sea
bed, burrowing itself in the sand, before using a mixture of surprise and
intelligence to pounce forward and constrict its prey with its mighty
tentacles. Once the prey is dead, it rips into its victim with its dagger like
claws. Food is often swallowed whole within one minute and the
indigestible parts, such as bones, scales and shells, are regurgitated.
