    Female Larger Pacific Striped Octpus are interoparous laying eggs over several months. Eggs are attached to the walls of the den - usually a shell. Females care for their eggs, but unlike most octopuses continue to hunt and mate while brooding. Eggs are small, about 3 mm - the size of mom's eye!
