These Itty Bitty Octopi Have 8 Arms, Infinite Cuteness

Think puppies and kittens have the monopoly on cute? These baby octopi would beg to differ.

Thanks to their bulbous heads, giant eyes, and teeny tiny arms, baby octopi are some of the most adorable creatures under the sea. Octopi are also quite intelligent, boasting the largest brains of any invertebrate. So while some might look a bit dopey (like the dumbo octopus), they're actually quite brainy.

Below, some itty bitty octopi to fulfill your daily dose of delightfulness. Trust us, these little guys give the octopus emoji a run for its money.
