Hello, my name is Catie Wayne, and welcome to "Weird, Gross,
and Beautiful," a casual discussion
about animals that I think are weird, gross, and/or beautiful,
or all three-- octopus.
Octopuses-- so did you know that they have eight legs?
Yes, you knew that.
But did you know that-- I'm going
to go with that one-- on a male, like the third right one,
at the end of it is a thing called a ligula.
And it's the reproductive organ.
So, you know, all that anime porn is starting to make sense.
Did you know that octopuses are venomous, all of them,
every single one?
But only a few of them have enough venom to kill humans.
One of them is the blue-ringed octopus.
It lives in Australia.
So if you're in Australia and you see an octopus,
especially don't touch it.
But you know what?
That makes perfect sense because everything extremely poisonous
is in Australia.
Who wants to go to Australia?
Have you seen the house spiders in Australia?
Have you seen them?
They're huge.
They wouldn't even have to bite you to kill you.
They'd just have to sit on your face while you're sleeping.
So, yeah, that blue-ringed octopus,
they inject their venom through their little beak that's
on the underside-- up in there.
If you had x-ray vision, it would be right here.
And it's made out of the same stuff like a lobster shell,
same hard stuff, looks like a bird beak-- octopus-es-es-es.
Octopuses is the correct way to say the plural of the word
octopus, not octopi, which sounds a hell of a lot better.
But if you say octopi, you run the risk
of grammar nazis being like, that's not the right word!
I think octopuses are really because I saw one
at the Monterey Bay Aquarium and I got a cool picture,
and it was all like, wa.
And apparently, the one at the Monterey Bay Aquarium
likes to touch humans and stuff.
And then when you touch it, it goes, eee!
And it's really cute and also I want.
I want.
I want.
I want.
Oh, also, PS, did you know that their ink,
it's not always just black.
It sometimes is red or brown.
And what happens is, when they get scared,
they swallow too much water, and they spit it
out super forcefully.
And that's where the ink comes from.
Thank you for watching "Weird, Gross, and Beautiful."
My name is Catie Wayne.
And if you want to, you can tweet
me @catiewayne about what animal you would like me to do,
because, basically, it's almost a 100,050% percent
guarantee that I'm going to do it.
And then you should subscribe to see
if I do the animal, which I will eventually.
Patience is a virtue.
And if you like animals, you should
watch "Animals With Low Self Esteem"
because it's a really hilarious show.
And it's over here.
And look at this episode.
I'm a prairie dog, so adorable.
I'm just a prairie dog.
I'm no hero.
Can't even deal.
Can't even handle.
It's all right.
It's OK.
We're going to get through this together.
I love you.
