Welcome to the world of pocket-sized octopuses! I know octopuses are sometimes portrayed as scary monsters, but how scary can an octopus really be when it’s the size of a paper clip?
Hairy Octopus (no official scientific name)
The size of a large paper clip and looking like a tiny ball of algae, it’s no wonder the tiny Hairy Octopus wasn’t discovered until the early 2000s.
Star-Sucker Pygmy Octopus (Octopus wolfi)
Found in shallow waters throughout the Indo-Pacific Ocean, this octopus grows no bigger than a bottle cap at 1 inch (2.5 cm) & weighs no more than a raisin about 1 gram (0.04 ounces).
The prettiest and the deadliest one of our tiny fab five!
Sorry lady Blanket Octopus, only the males are making our teensy-tiny octopus list.
