All’s Fair in Love and Strangulation

22Apr08

Flirtation. Jealousy. Violence. No, this isn’t an episode of “Days of our Lives”; it’s merely a glimpse into the love-lives of octopuses.

Not only do they hold hands (or tentacles) and get it on several times a day (take note, humans); but they fight for love! The males guard the dens of their lovers for days; and if others get too close to the female, the male may strangle them! (Talk about a fatal attraction!)
