Portuguese octopus

The octopuses live in deep waters around the world, but Portugal is the largest exporter of this species.

The octopus is a cephalopod mollusk with eight arms, no tentacles, and which internal shell is lost or considerably reduced. It eats crustaceans and mollusks like small crabs and scallops.

The octopus is good when fried, baked and is even delectable in salads.
