    Octopuses, squid, and cuttlefish are sea-dwelling mollusks. Although they are related to slugs and snails, these creatures are fast-moving hunters with keen senses and big brains. They have long, flexible arms for catching prey, and sharp beaks which deliver a powerful bite. Book Study: Octopuses, Squids, and Cuttlefish by Trudi Strain Trueit: I have a wide range of readers in my 2nd grade classroom and I created this book study so some of my students can do their own book study since I cannot meet with them as much as I would like.4/5(1).

      Just when we thought octopuses couldn't be any weirder, it turns out that they and their cephalopod brethren evolve differently from nearly every other organism on the planet.. In a surprising twist, in April scientists discovered that octopuses, along with some squid and cuttlefish species, routinely edit their RNA (ribonucleic acid) sequences to adapt to their environment. The book Octopus, Squid, and Cuttlefish: A Visual, Scientific Guide to the Oceans’ Most Advanced Invertebrates, Roger Hanlon, Mike Vecchione, and Louise Allcock is published by University of Chicago Press.

    Cephalopod intelligence is a measure of the cognitive ability of the cephalopod class of molluscs.. Intelligence is generally defined as the process of acquiring, storing, retrieving, combining, comparing, and recontextualizing information and conceptual skills. Though these criteria are difficult to measure in nonhuman animals, cephalopods seem to be exceptionally intelligent invertebrates. About this Item: The book is the first modern attempt to survey the entire molluscan class Cephalopoda. It keys, briefly characterizes, and illustrates all the species of squids and cuttlefishes of the world fauna and the majority of the octopuses.
