Southern red octopus (Enteroctopus megalocyathus)

The southern red octopus or Patagonian giant octopus is another member of the Enteroctopus genus, which is often called the giant octopus group. However, the southern red octopus is very small compared to the other members of Enteroctopus and only grows up to about 8.81 pounds (4 kilograms) – this is still “big” compared to many other octopus species.

The southern red octopus is native to southeastern coast of South America, which is also known as the Patagonian coast. This octopus is aptly named and is often a very vibrant red colour.
