Why are GPOs so awesome?!
The GPO is distinguished from other species by its sheer size. Adults usually weigh around 15 kg (33 lb), with an arm span of up to 4.3 m (14 ft). The giant Pacific octopus is considered to be short-lived for an animal of its size, with lifespans that average only 3–5 years in the wild. To make up for its relatively short life span, the octopus is extremely prolific. It can lay up to 100,000 eggs which are intensively cared for by the females, which die protecting the eggs.
