Octopuses taste food with their arms

The octopus, a strange creature of the sea, has been discovered to prey on its prey with its eight arms or to taste its food, thus avoiding eating poisonous food.

Experts say that the octopus's arms act like human tongues and make it taste like food by licking food, with soft waxy scissors on the inside of its arms that stick.

They contain large amounts of nerve cells. On the one hand, they themselves make the creature aware and on the other hand, tell them whether food is good for them or harmful and toxic.

Nicholas Bellono of Harvard University said that at first it was thought that a tongue-like organ in his mouth, the radiola, did this, but it turned out that the radiola works as a toothpick and helps to break down food.
