Octopus bimaculoides is a small to medium species that can reach adult sizes up to 800g(1.7 lbs) in about a year under ideal conditions of abundant food. If obtained small and fed a modest diet this species will not get very large. This species is somewhat active in daylight hours. They forage in the early evening. This animal is somewhat intermediate with respect to the diversity in its’ range of body patterns and is a quite good at camouflage. This species has a life span of 12 - 18 months depending on temperature.
