This incredible image of a larval octopus—which can fit on the tip of your finger—was taken soon after it was collected on a research cruise, preserving its beautiful coloring.
After larval (baby) octopuses hatch from eggs, they float in the currents as zooplankton until they grow large enough to defend themselves. Few will survive to this stage, instead becoming food for larger organisms.

Baby Boom at American Zoos:  Pacific Giant Octopus

The giant Pacific octopus at the National Aquarium is just a baby, but as an adult it could weigh up to 90 pounds.
Aquarium staff members are providing enrichment to encourage cognitive development. One such brainteaser involves providing the octopus with a container in which food has been hidden. The octopus learns how to open the container and, with its 1,800 suction cups, finds the tasty fishy morsels.
