Last week an OCTOPUS, a real live octopus, was rescued from a rockpool, just along the beach from SandyHands at Monkston point! How amazing is that? You don't often see an Octopus in Pembrokeshire.
An Octopus is a strange and clever thing. These eight-armed animals have a few cheeky tricks...
They are very clever
If threatened, octopuses shoot ink that make the water around them dark which confuses everyone around them.
They can hide by blending in with their surroundings. They change colour to grey, brown, pink, blue or green. Impressive stuff!
An Octopus uses colour change to communicate with other octopuses. I wonder what an Octopus changes to when it's happy? I think I would change to sparkly pink if I was an Octopus!
Look at these fabulous, eight-legged Octopus the SandyHanders made this week
Look what we found on the beach -– magical inky rockpools.
And, when you're next on the beach, see if you can find a Sock-topus, check it has 8 cosy warm legs!
Looking forward to seeing you all again next Tuesday SandyHanders!
Look out for our latest SandyHands session - SandyExplorers, starting Tuesday 13th September 4-5pm. If you're aged between 4 and 6 hop along for a bit of a splash!
Oh my goodness CoppetKids, we have had some weather haven't we? The last two Thursdays have been....well, a bit yuck. Did that stop the fun? Did the rain put out our campfire?
