Do octopuses poop?

Asked by Simone Whitehead

The giant Pacific octopus excretes waste through its siphon, a funnel-like hole on the side of its mantle. As a result, its poop comes out as a long, noodle-like strand. … Though it usually noshes on crabs, mussels, small fishes and sea urchins, fecal matter is not an unusual meal for this animal.
