Pasha, the mermaid, loves all the creatures she shares the ocean with, but she is especially fascinated by the Octopus. Beneath the waves, she has become friends with many species of Octopi, playing fun games like hide and seek. Over the years, she has learned just how smart and interesting these creatures are – They are great at hiding, using their abilities to change color, and their lack of bones to hide in tight spaces. Pasha loves to share fun facts about her friends – “Did you know that an octopus has three hearts and blue blood?” She may get a little carried away, but with every person she meets, she hopes to leave them inspired, wanting to learn all there is to know about the amazing world underwater!
