World Octopus Day
The first World Octopus Day was celebrated in conjunction with Cephalopod Awareness Day. The Octopus News Magazine Online (TONMO) founded World Octopus Day to celebrate its diversity, conservation, and biology. They chose the eighth day of the month to show appreciation for animals with eight legs! Did you know, Octopus fossils date back over 300 million years? This means that the octopus is older than the dinosaur!
