Development of behavior in octopus joubini

Development of behavior in octopus joubini

Vie et Milieu 34(1): 17-20

The development of the behavior of O. joubini Robson, 1929, is described. Young O. joubini captured prey like adults and occupied appropriate size shells similarly. They changed gradually from swimming to walking on the substrate in the 1st few weeks of life. During this time their activity cycle changed from a slightly nocturnal to a light-cued and strictly nocturnal one, like that of adults. The variability of behavior of young octopuses is discussed.
