The common octopus (Octopus vulgaris) locally knows as pulpo are very common around the coast of Fuerteventura.

They grow up to 25 cm in length with eight tentacles up to a metre long each with two rows of suckers.

During the day they usually hide themselves crevices blocking the entrance with stones and shells. Hunting at dusk, crabs, crayfish, and two-shelled molluscs are preferred, although the octopus will eat almost anything it can catch. It is able to change colour to blend in with its surroundings, and is able to pounce upon any unwary prey that strays across its path.

The common octopus can often be seen when snorkelling in Fuerteventura and often when disturbed will change colour and disappear very quickly using its in built jet propulsion.
