[10-8-2022] Microsoft Rewards Bing Homepage Quiz Question: How long do octopuses live?
The given options are:
- A few years
- 10 to 20 years
- Up to 50 years
Correct Answer: A few years
Fact: An octopus is a soft-bodied, eight-limbed mollusk of the order Octopoda. The soft body can radically alter its shape, enabling octopuses to squeeze through small gaps. Octopuses have a complex nervous system and excellent sight and are among the most intelligent and behaviourally diverse of all invertebrates. Octopuses grow quickly, mature early, and die young. Some live less than a year, and most only one to two years. The giant Pacific octopus is one of the longest-lived octopus species, with three to five years of life. All octopuses are venomous, but only the blue-ringed octopuses are known to be deadly to humans.
