Octopus can also taste you just only by touch

  • He understands the fake shape

Ranchi:  Octopus is already a name which creates curiosity among us. We have a

variety of experiences with the name of Octopus. This sea creature has been a

surprise from the beginning because of its size and behavior. Many science fiction

films have also been made on this. Scientists had already come to know that the

brain of this sea creature also works fast. Now a new weapon to taste them has

been revealed. We already know that this marine organism can accommodate

even the smallest area due to its extremely flexible size and structure. But its

unique way of hunting has always been to thrill scientists and frighten common

people. Also, his mastery of changing color and size to protect himself from

attack is also amazing. It is now known that there is a small brain inside his long

long arms. With the help of this brain, he can touch anything and feel its taste.

There are hundreds of small holes in these arms, with the help of which he hunts

and through that he can also understand the taste of any object due to touch.

Octopus specialty discovered by Scientist’s research

Scientists of oceanography who have researched this have found that the signals

from these tiny little fibers reach the brain on its arms. Each hole has the same

tactile ability. Therefore, when they are in contact with any thing or creature, its

signal goes up to that mind. The strange thing is that these independent minds are

also attached to their original minds by the use of fibers. Because of this he can

feel the taste of everything that comes in touch with the help of his every porous

wall. Molecular biologist Leena van Giesen and colleagues at Harvard University

researchers have found this out. Furthering the research, these scientists have also

identified those funds which have such properties. These are called chemotactyl

cells. This cell sends a special type of toxic signal at its other end. The

independent mind can analyze these signals and detect taste. Overall, in the

common language, an octopus has thousands of such tongues, which are the same

with a human being, but in this one tongue of a human also has different glands of

taste, which send signals to the brain . On the other hand, the possibility of an

attack, it is through these holes that it leaves the toxic fluid and bothers the one

who comes near. Nicholas Bellino, the scientist associated with this research, said

that perhaps due to this special quality, he finds his prey hidden under sand by his

touch while walking on the ocean floor.

Due to this quality, hunts on the sea floor

After finding the victim, he grabs it with a mesh of these fibers. Because of this

quality of taste by touch, he understands whether the signal that has reached his

mind is worth his food or not. If he is not fit for food, he goes ahead. For this test,

scientists had also placed food or octopus-shaped objects. But on touching, he

understood that it is just like food in shape when they were not food. So he left

them and went ahead. Researchers have also copied these cells after discovering

these cells. These artificial cells prepared in the laboratory were also inserted

into human body structure and frog eggs. They were set aside for testing. Later,

he was automatically activated when he was exposed to an octopus victim. That

too confirms this special quality of the octopus.
