Special Abilities

Ink Cloud (Ex) While within water, an octopus can emit a 5-foot-radius sphere of ink once per minute as a swift action. This ink provides total concealment and persists for 1 minute.

Jet (Ex) The octopus can jet 60 feet in a straight line as a full-round action. This does not provoke attacks of opportunity.

Poison (Ex) Bite—injury; save Fort DC 10; frequency 1/round for 6 rounds; effect 1 Str; cure 1 save.

Blue-ringed octopuses are aquatic animals capable of a surprising amount of cunning. They cannot survive out of water.
