Can a 3 legged cat survive?
In fact, while the initial adaption period can be a challenge, cats adjust to a three-legged lifestyle remarkably well and many disabled cats live a full and happy life. Once adjusted, most cats with three legs are able to jump, run and climb and play although perhaps a little slower than in their four-legged days!

Are there any 3 legged animals?
There are no known naturally occurring three-legged animals, although the movement of some macropods such as kangaroos, which can alternate between resting their weight on their muscular tails and their two hind legs, may be an example of tripedal locomotion in animals.
Why do octopuses have 9 brains?
Octopuses have 9 brains because, in addition to the central brain, each of 8 arms has a mini-brain that allows it to act independently. Octopuses have blue blood because they have adapted to cold, low oxygen water by using hemocyanin, a copper rich protein.
Do octopus kill you?
The tiny blue-ringed octopus, one of the world’s most venomous animals, can kill an adult human in minutes. These rings are a warning when the animal is threatened. If a predator doesn’t leave, the octopus then attacks by ejecting venom that causes paralysis and, later, death.

Intelligence. The octopus has a complex nervous system and is capable of learning and demonstrating memory. In both laboratory and ocean settings, the octopus is known to recognize faces.
Are octopus really smart?
