Science fiction buffs have come up with many strange depictions of alien life, but nothing to rival a creature with a beak like a parrot, no bones in its body, and that swallows its food through the hole in the centre of its doughnut-shaped brain. It has three hearts, blue blood, skin that can change colours like a kaleidoscope, and eight arms growing out of its lips. It`s powered by jet propulsion and can transform its body shape to mimic other life forms. This isn’t science fiction – it’s alive and well in our ocean… and it’s known as a cephalopod.
