Kategoria: Artykuły

The stripe-bar-spot pattern was dominated by full coverage of alternating brown and white bars and stripes on the head and mantle, and white spots over a dark brown background on the arm crown and arms. adshelp[at]cfa.harvard.edu The ADS is operated by the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory under NASA Cooperative Agreement NNX16AC86A Science Friday: The Strangely Social Life of the Larger Pacific Striped Octopus; Behavior and Body Patterns of the Larger Pacific Striped Octopus; Penn’s Sunday School: Octopodes and the Cephs, and Laws Make Weasels; How male octopuses avoid being eaten by hungry females; Social Octopus Species Shatters Beliefs About Ocean Dwellers ; Collection, Transport and Husbandry of the Coconut Octopus Females were typically larger than the males offered. This behavioral catalog describes prominent behaviors related to feeding, den construction, mating, aggression, egg-laying, and senescence observable in the laboratory. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0134152.s001. Beak-to-beak mating, dens shared by mating pairs, inking during mating and extended spawning were mentioned in publications, and enticed generations of cephalopod biologists. A) Eggs attached to shell used for brooding; B) Close up of eggs from a single clutch. Beak-to-beak mating, dens shared by mating pairs, inking during mating and extended spawning were mentioned in publications, and enticed generations of cephalopod biologists. We also include limited references to observations from the 1970’s, which are drawn from observations and collections performed by A. Rodaniche at the Naos Island Marine Laboratory of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in the Republic of Panama. The large eggs hatch in about 65 days at 23°C. Octopus Behavior. They were collected for commercial sale in the aquarium trade by Livan, Jansen & Cia. 7. The species was first documented in the 1970s and, being fairly new to scientific observation, has yet to be scientifically described. The one male-female pair that shared a den was regularly observed to feed in the beak-to-beak posture. 2015. It appears that numerous selective pressures or evolutionary constraints may have led to the rare but phylogenetically widespread expression of this trait. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0134152.g005. False frontal white eye spots: two adjacent white spots centered below eyes; C.-D. Females continue to feed, lay at least hundreds of additional eggs, and accept additional copulations long after the first eggs have hatched. Slow bounce was often associated with slow movements forward, incorporating an erratic bouncing motion, and a flared arm crown (S4 Movie). At times, while crawling, the dorsal arms (arms I) were held forward with the arm tips curled back tightly exposing the suckers (Fig 3E). Although available, pebbles were generally not used for construction of a larger den. Trawls capturing individuals in the 1970’s operated at depths ranging from 7–100 m, however exact depths of capture during those collections are not known. In a posture we call slow bounce, in which animals exhibited darker coloration, flattened body with the dorsal arms were held forward, while the upwardly-arched arms and mantle were alternately raised and lowered slowly (Fig 3H). All of the unique behaviors listed above were observed for animals in aquaria and are discussed here. A blue sheen was often visible on dark areas (Fig 2I), and a green undertone visible in the pale regions. One female was observed to have eggs in both a den and on the walls of the plastic container and would carry the den with her, over her mantle, to tend both sets of eggs. Despite the potential interest of these unusual behaviors to cephalopod biologists, 25 years ago a full ethological description was rejected and the original observations never resubmitted for publication. Smaller white spots corresponding to the raised portions of granular skin texture were visible on the dorso-lateral surfaces of the arms (Fig 2F). Chromatophore patterns of hatchlings are also shown. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0134152.g004. Cite . In one case, a female occupied the same den for over 14 months, and in cases where females were moved to different tanks, their den was moved with them. In a paper published in this issue of Current Biology, Edsinger and Dölen have moved the study of social behavior in octopus into the lab. However, LPSO appear better designated as ‘continuous spawning’ with a single prolonged egg-laying period, rather than ‘iteroparous’ with multiple discretely separate egg-laying periods [30]. No damaging injures occurred. In 2012–2014 we were able to obtain several live specimens of this species, which remains without a formal description. In each of these cases the female was initially kept in her den in a plastic container with the top removed, and the male was allowed access to the entire aquarium. For this week’s homework, read “Behavior and Body Patterns of the Larger Pacific Striped Octopus” by Caldwell et al. During the first case of mating observed, animals were separated. One male and female pair housed together (of the four male-female pairs that shared a tank) generally spent most of their time in separate dens, but occasionally both animals occupied the same den for several hours at a time. These bars and stripes varied in shape between individuals, especially on the head and anterior portion of the dorsal mantle. [17,51]. Yes Over thirty years ago anecdotal accounts of the undescribed Larger Pacific Striped Octopus suggested behaviors previously unknown for octopuses. Competing interests: The authors have declared that no competing interests exist. "Behavior and Body Patterns of the Larger Pacific Striped Octopus." We thank Elizabeth Palomeque for her patronage and support of this project, as well as Jean Auplay, Marisa Avila and Kalin Ross for their help in the care of the animals during this study. In 2012–2014 regardless of den type used in captivity, females moved into dens and laid eggs inside.

Water temperature was 20–23°C. Arm pulling [27], constricting [28], and cannibalism were not observed. Amphioctopus marginatus was discovered in 1964 and has a standout behavior. Adults usually weigh around 15 kg (33 lb), with an arm span of up to 4.3 m (14 ft). Yes Dark-light contrast of these components was expressed in varying degrees from high contrast (Fig 2A–2E) to barely visible during expression of all dark brown (Fig 2G) and all pale (Fig 2H). Beak-to-beak mating might limit access to a mating female to one male at a time because she has one buccal area, a situation that might confer competitive mating advantages in this group-living species. Unless otherwise stated, observations reported here are based on live animals kept in captivity from 2012–2014 at the University of California, Berkeley and California Academy of Sciences, USA. The larger Pacific striped octopus exhibits a striking high-contrast display of colors and patterns, which can vary from a pale to dark reddish-brown hue to black with white stripes, and spots with both smooth and uneven skin textures. The aggregated benthic octopuses at the active vent used their arms and webs to forage on bathypelagic amphipods, apparently targeting their attacks based on contact with the swarming amphipods. In shallow-water octopuses, female senescence typically begins shortly after egg laying, and death coincides approximately with hatching [31]. Opistoteuthis [44,45]), few shallow-water octopuses are known to exhibit extended spawning. Between April 2012 and August 2014 a total of 24 individuals (13 males and 11 females) were hand-collected on SCUBA and obtained from commercial aquarium wholesalers [Quality Marine (18), Live Aquaria (1), Russo’s Reef (4) and Sea Logic (1)]. These containers were placed within larger aquaria (227–757 L) with a closed seawater filtration system. The peculiar behaviors seen in the larger Pacific striped octopus are actually a testament to how little is known about most octopuses, Caldwell said. Iteroparity, a form of extended spawning in which multiple batches of eggs are laid, is thought to increase lifetime fecundity of very small cephalopods (as in Octopus chierchiae [6]), which are limited by ovary space in the mantle cavity [46]. Larger Pacific Striped Octopuses mate in a beak-to-beak position, as if kissing. One female did not move for three to four weeks before dying. BibTex; Full citation; Publisher: Public Library of Science (PLoS) Year: 2015. No, Is the Subject Area "Predation" applicable to this article? Finally, beak-to-beak mating might allow males to monopolize mating access to females. While many species of octopus are known for their showy displays of color, the larger Pacific striped octopus is particularly notable for its striking high-contrast display of colors and patterns, which can vary from a pale to dark reddish-brown hue to black with white stripes and … Two females were introduced to males while brooding. Once hatching began it continued daily for over three months (n = 5 females), suggesting eggs were also laid daily. The resting posture of brooding LPSO involves the oral surface facing outward while the dorsal mantle faces the eggs. Unique behaviors like beak-to-beak mating, den co-occupancy by a mating pair, extended spawning, and unique prey-capture were observed in captive larger Pacific striped octopus. Note blue sheen of funnel and green undertone of pale bars on the eye. The granular skin, including on the dorso-lateral surfaces of the arms, is similar to that found in Amphioctopus spp. In the 1970’s hatching began between days 37–38 (housed at 27–28°C). Chromatophore patterns of hatchlings are also shown. This observation suggests group site fidelity, which might extend beyond the life span of a single individual. California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco, California, United States of America, Affiliation Unlike with distance and mounting postures observed in other types of octopus, beak-to-beak mating in LPSO frequently involves grappling, and allows rapid full envelopment of the male into the female’s oral web, behaviors that are typically associated with aggressive contests in octopuses [14,27]. Rodaniche submitted an abstract to the Bulletin of Marine Science in 1991, but the creature he described was so unusual that the paper didn’t pass peer review—so the LPSO remained obscure for another two decades, until two California scientists working on the … This mating position might allow for sucker alignment and simultaneous beak-to-beak feeding associated with mating and/or pairing behavior, including during brooding. Copulation was never seen during these feeding events, but occurred at other times. This system allowed physical separation of animals in case of aggression because some octopuses can be cannibalistic in captivity [10] and in the wild [11,12]. Back in the 1970’s, a biologist discovered what he believed to be a new octopus species. Females typically died between two and four months after showing the initial signs of senescence. Octopus briareus Robson is a common octopod in the tropical W. Atlantic weighing up to 1500 g and measuring 1 m. ... and these methods may be applicable for mariculture on a larger scale. In one of the two cases of inking observed of all animals in captivity, a male inked when enveloped by the mating female. Videos were taken with a Sony HDR-CX165 (RR), a Sony Handycam HDR-XR260-V (RLC) and an iPhone 4 (RR). Categories: Cephalopod breeding , Cephalopods , Journal publications , Larger Pacific Striped Octopus Search Term. Credit: Behavior and Body Patterns of the Larger Pacific Striped Octopus When brooding females mated, the beak-to-beak position permitted the female to remain in the brooding area with the oral surface facing the male and her mantle facing the eggs. Some species chase their prey, some ambush their prey and others stalk their pray quietly until they can pounce on them. Although a species description of LPSO is forthcoming by other authors, we provide detailed photographs and descriptions of live individuals that should allow for easy identification, and provide a guide for future ethological studies. Octopus body color patterns and textures are determined by the presence, location, and pigment composition of fixed anatomical structures and muscles in the skin [7].

They are mostly solitary creatures though reports have demonstrated some few anomalies where groups of up to 40 octopuses live together. 3. California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco, California, United States of America, Affiliation Impaired color change was gradual in females, first noticeable two weeks into senescence. If so, then it is possible that their individually unique body color patterns might facilitate this form of recognition, and allow for the unique suite of interspecific interactions observed here in LPSO, such as repeated mating, and food and den sharing. Posted August 30, 2018 by UCMP While many species of octopus are known for their showy displays of color, the larger Pacific striped octopus is particularly notable for its striking high-contrast display of colors and patterns, which can vary from a pale to dark reddish-brown hue to black with white stripes and spots with both smooth and uneven skin textures. However, with the exception of LPSO, this mating position appears to be absent among octopuses. No, Is the Subject Area "Eggs" applicable to this article? Based on earlier collections, the deepest published mention of LPSO habitat is 300 m [4], and groups of up to 40 individuals were observed living in close proximity, with dens within one meter of one another [4]. Passing cloud [23] was not observed. When this male and female shared a den, each one sat at a different opening, and the pair mated daily.

Caldwell et al (2015), PLoS ONE http://dx.doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0134152Over thirty years ago anecdotal accounts of the undescribed Larger Pacific Striped Octopus suggested behaviors previously unknown for octopuses. Females frequently tended eggs by running arm tips through them to presumably keep them from fouling. Octopus briareus Robson is a common octopod in the tropical W. Atlantic weighing up to 1500 g and measuring 1 m. It can be easily reared on a small scale for research purposes in open and closed systems, and these methods may be applicable for mariculture on a larger scale. LPSO appears to be endemic to the tropical Eastern Pacific. Based on observations of these individuals maintained in the laboratory from 2012–2014, we provide photographic and video evidence and behavioral descriptions that confirm many observations reported in previous accounts about this species [4,5], including beak-to-beak mating, co-occupancy of a den by a mating male and female pair, extended spawning, and unique prey-capture methods. It was not possible to determine whether these spermatophores had been flushed from the female’s oviducts by forceful female mantle contractions, or if the spermatophores had never been placed into the oviduct by the male in the first place.

Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, Moss Landing, California, United States of America. Senescence, marked in octopuses by the abrupt cessation or gradual reduction in feeding [31], appeared to take longer for females than males. No, Is the Subject Area "Animal sexual behavior" applicable to this article? Because of this, LPSO has no official scientific name. PLoS One, 10 (2015), p. e0134152. Dr. Arcadio Rodaniche initially mentioned the species in a paper back in 1977 and published a full description of the species in 1991. The giant Pacific octopus (Enteroctopus dofleini) is often cited as the largest known octopus species. The larger Pacific striped octopus (LPSO) is a species of octopus known for its intelligence and gregarious nature. One female spawned continuously for six months and brooded for a total of eight months. Beak-to-beak mating, dens shared by mating pairs, inking during mating and extended spawning were Yes Because animals were active in the day, and did not appear to be active during the night (as verified by haphazardly timed checks), ambient light was sufficient for observations. We do not know whether this situation also applies to LPSO. The pale bars and stripes of this pattern were delineated by a raised white border (1 mm maximum in elevation) that circumscribed the pale components. Beak-to-beak mating by LPSO would not confer this advantage in sperm-competition to males. Larger Pacific striped octopuses are known for their beautiful stripes and polka dots, and they also appear to be more social than any other known species of octopus. Instead, crabs were captured when LPSO pounced on them directly. https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0134152.g001. California Academy of Sciences, San Francisco, California, United States of America, 3136-3142 . Therefore any references to the frequency of observations must be interpreted with caution. We thank Lukas Jansen of Livan, Jansen & Cia. No direct aggression was observed of females housed in the female/female/male group tank. 2015. It appeared to the locally-experienced collectors using SCUBA that there was only one persistent aggregation of octopus at the site of collection. Credit: Behavior and Body Patterns of the Larger Pacific Striped Octopus Behavior and Body Patterns of the Larger Pacific Striped Octopus. Photographs were taken of animals in aquaria with a variety of camera gear. We used conventional terminology of gross morphology [13]. A feeding frenzy of 12 octopuses of Vulcanoctopus hydrothermalis was observed from the manned submersible ‘Alvin’ at Parigo, a 2620 m deep hydrothermal vent on the East Pacific Rise. (PDF) Behavior and Body Patterns of the Larger Pacific Striped Octopus | Roy Caldwell - Academia.edu Over thirty years ago anecdotal accounts of the undescribed Larger Pacific Striped Octopus suggested behaviors previously unknown for octopuses. The cases of beak-to-beak feeding behavior were observed by a pair that, at other times, mated repeatedly and co-occupied den space. Behavior and Body Patterns of the Larger Pacific Striped Octopus. A behavioral and genetic study of multiple paternity in a polygamous marine invertebrate, Octopus oliveri. No, Is the Subject Area "Spawning" applicable to this article? Is the Subject Area "Octopus" applicable to this article? However, other brooding females mated without overt resistance. When in adjacent tanks, individual LPSO frequently expressed the high-contrast stripe-bar-spot while the neighbor was feeding or otherwise visibly active in its tank. No, Is the Subject Area "Aggression" applicable to this article? Crossref; PubMed; Scopus (22) Google Scholar]. In these cases the female initially caught the prey item and the male approached, entering into the beak-to-beak position, with the prey between the two animals. In cases when air bubbles were trapped in barnacles and conch shells used for dens (as occurred sometimes during tank cleaning), octopuses turned the shells over, which removed the air bubbles, before entering. A dark eye bar (Fig 2I) was visible in all body color patterns, and sometimes extended anteriorly and/or posteriorly beyond the eye. Octopuses were fed every other day a variety of crustaceans and molluscs (see Hunting and feeding section). Partial-body chromatic signals used by O. rubescens. At rest, individuals often sat with the oral surface exposed and the arms pulled back behind the mantle (Fig 3C). This housing system also maintained the possibility for visual and chemical communication between individuals. These accounts included beak-to-beak mating, dens shared by mating pairs, inking during mating, and extended spawning [4–6].
