Something about these animals is just plain alien. Few Earth natives can lay claim to having anything like BizarreAlienBiology, and cephalopods are among them -- they have two gill hearts, one systemic heart, and blue blood. They are invertebrates without carapaces, yet unlike worms and their mollusc kin snails and clams, they move with purpose and have large, staring eyes with HellishPupils. There are suckers on their tentacle-arms, and a few species like the colossal squid have ''hooks''.

Their mouths are ''beaked'' and positioned strangely, their bodies look weirdly like heads, they expel clouds of ink to distract their predators, they move strangely, and some can leap out of the water like flying fish. Many of them can change colors and even the texture of their skin and they're somehow able to do this while being ''completely color-blind''. Some species have donut-shaped brains and their esophagus runs through the "donut hole". And of course, they are bizarrely intelligent: On the same level as a cat or a bird, but unlike cats or birds, they don't learn from any parent as they die right after the eggs hatch.
