Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, the octopus must hit with its arms attack. If it gets a hold, it automatically deals bite damage each round the hold is maintained.

Ink Cloud (Ex): An octopus can emit a cloud of jet-black ink 10 feet high by 10 feet wide by 10 feet long once a minute as a free action. The cloud provides total concealment, which the octopus normally uses to escape a losing fight. Creatures within the cloud suffer the effects of total darkness.

Jet (Ex): An octopus can jet backward once a round as a double move action, at a speed of 200 feet.

Skills: An octopus can change colors, giving it a +4 racial bonus to Hide checks. An octopus also can squeeze and contort its body, giving it a +10 racial bonus to Escape Artist checks.
