Are not fish but they live in the ocean. Fish being symbolic for Christians. Octopus are not Christian.

They are very smart--I read somewhere they are the smartest of the invertebrates. I saw an octopus in an aquarium once that was playing with this:

Octopus's can camoflague themselves so they are not discovered I've heard, they are also very clingy and can attatch themselves to people with their tenticles.

I also agree with dreamster that these creatures are very deceptive.

God is amazing. I had no idea that it was typical for octupus to camoflauge themselves or disguise themselves, in other words or PRETEND TO BE WHAT THEY ARE NOT.

I found this after a quick search:

Impersonating a police officer to get yourself out of a jam could land you in jail. But in the natural world, mimicry is a relatively common -- and handy -- device to escape trouble. Like tossing on a blue uniform and a badge, some insects and animals copy colorations and patterns of poisonous or otherwise dangerous species to fake out predators. Others employ camouflage techniques to blend into their surroundings in seconds and become barely detectable.

The octopus's body is readily equipped for disguise. You might not think that octopuses would need to hide from anything in the sea -- they seem pretty menacing with eight tentacles and bulbous heads. But in actuality, these cephalopods have plenty to watch out for because their soft bodies are scrumptious feasts for sting rays, sharks and other aggressive fish. When the heat is on, octopuses can literally shape-shift in moments to completely alter their appearance. Sacs of yellow, red, brown and black pigment called chromatophores cover their bodies and allow them to change colors and patterns by contracting their muscles. Tightening certain muscles can also transform the texture of their skin to look like the smooth ocean floor or a craggy reef.

The following link has an amazing picture of an octopus in disguise....

That's a pretty cool picture Mia, and if your not looking for the octopus you probably would not see it..
