UPGRADED to Octopus!
Hold W to use your 'Disguise' ability!
(Hint: wait for prey to bite you - they get stunned!)

The Octopus is the eleventh Ocean Animal in mope.io, and is the ocean equivalent of the Crocodile, Polar Bear, Falcon, and Tiger.

Technical

The octopus:

Appearance

The octopus is rounded (having most of its body parts circular) and orange in color. Similar to Squids and Krakens, an Octopus 's ''tail'' is located on its head, albeit rounded and not pointed. It has four pairs of tentacles appearing on each side appearing as small circles. Around it's "tail", few designs are apparent mimicking an octopus's texture in reality.

Due to their ability, octopuses can change their appearance, from seaweeds and kelps, to snails and whirlpools which can be used for both tricking prey and escaping predators.

Strategy

The Octopus' disguise ability is very useful for catching prey, and it's ink immunity makes it very useful against Squids, which could otherwise slow you down when fleeing from predators.

If your disguise is Kelp, Whirlpool, Frogs, Hill, Swordfish, Pelican, or Plankton, you probably should just go back to undisguised form as these either do not attract prey (Hill, swordfish, or pelican), or they look very unrealistic(much bigger or smaller than the regular form). Staying in disguised form will slow you down, make your ability not able to recharge, and will not give you anything.

If your disguise is Snail, try to stay away from Kelps, Starfish, Plankton Bushes, or Clams as normal Snails cannot eat these foods/go through these items. Instead, mimmick other snails to trick Stingrays and above animals.

If you see a predator and you are in disguise form, don't panick. Try to trick them if you are in disguise before they can be seen on your screen. If you disguised after they can be seen on your screen, they will not be tricked and proceed to using their abilities. If that is the case, either dive or undisguise and run away(as disguise slow your speed).

If you are getting chased by Shark, Orca, or Blue Whale, and they are very close(near bite range), use your disguise ability suddenly. They may not expect it and they will bite, which will make them inked, giving you time to escape. However, beware of sharks who you suspect its ability is recharged.

You can use your ability to stun snails from going into its shell by going next to its head. The snail will be stunned and you do not have to worry about it going into its shell.
