Gallery Name:Cephalopod Aquarium
Owner: water_gally
Description: My gallery is all about the cephalopods. In just one aquarium I've collected as many squid, octopus, nautilus, and cuttlefish as I have been able to find in my searches of Neopia's oceans and beyond.


The Gallery:


Cephy says hello there please marvel at these fabulous creatures Welcome to the Cephalopod Aquarium come learn about the cephalopods of Neopia. I've searched far and wide to find all of the cephalopods in Neopia, and all of the items related to these marvelous creatures. It wasn't as easy as you'd think. Keep reading to learn more about the cephalopods that lurk in neopia's waters.

A cephalopod is a type of mollusk (part of the molluscan phylum) and member of the Cephalopoda class. These marine animals are characterized by bilateral body symmetry, and prominent head, and a set of arms or tentacles. The Cephalopoda class includes Octopus, Squid, Cuttlefish, and Nautilus. I've divided the gallery into these four groups, with a fifth group (tentacles plus) dedicated to general cephalopod items that can't necessarily be placed into a distinct category, but definitely still from a cephalopod.

Octopuses are distinguished by their soft bodies and usually no more than eight arms, their arms trail behind them as they swim. While not all of the octopuses in Neopia have eight arms, take the uniocto as an example, all of them have soft bodies and at least one arm that can trail behind it as it swims. The also usually have suction cups on their arms. There are a number of petpets that fit the octopus class. Even one pet! The Acara is magically transformed into an octopus when painted maraquan. In fact, a number of the maraquan petpets also become amazing octopuses when painted, look through the gallery to see which ones!

Squid have distinct heads and eight arms as well, but they can also have two tentacles that are longer than the arms. There are a number of squid types in neopia and they were quite easy to come by in the underwater fishing cavern. But some Neopian petpets, like the swabby, that at first appear to be an octopus are better categorized as a squid because their bodies are not soft like an octopus. I placed the tencals in this category as well because there is no way those teeth are soft enough to fit through a tiny hole the way and octopus can!

Cuttlefish have a unique internal shell, and a "cuttlebone" buoyancy system that causes them to look a bit like horizontal squid, like other cephalopods, their arms also have suction cups on them. The cuttlebot is the obvious cuttlefish of Neopia (or off Neopia's surface I suppose) but in my search of neopia, I found other petpets that fit the description. Such as the Trunkard, sure it only has one "arm" but so does the uniocto, and the trunkard has the lateral fins that many cuttlefish have, which help them swim.

Nautilus are often considered to be a living fossil, but a few species still survive to this day. They are distinct from other cephalopods because they have a large external whorl shell , and a number of tentacles (actually called cirri) which are retractable into the shell. For a long time I thought that I wouldn't be able to discover a living nautilus species in Neopia, until I remembered to look ABOVE neopia, when I found the millipod. The millipod is clearly a cephalopod (it ends with the -pod suffix after all) and it's tentacle like arms have suckers on the end. The millipod is obviously most like a nautilus, so I've found one of each subspecies (color) and they now live happily here in the cephalopod aquarium with the other lovely cephalopods.
