    Not sure how much entertainment news you read… so I’m actually wondering WHICH Madonna you’re referencing. Either could work at the moment, hahaha

    Monado, although it may not be true of all cephalopods, some octopoda lose dangerous amounts of weight while protecting their young — if that’s her offspring, she’s likely to take care of it.

    Actually, in general, cephalopds taking care of (or even just laying) their eggs lose ALL of their body mass. Entirely dangerous.

    Octopus moms don’t bother eating, or healing up cuts and abrasions, or preventing bits of themselves from rotting away, while protecting/cleaning/aerating eggs. Her egg-babies tend to do better (== survive in larger proportions) if she manages to stay alive until they hatch.

    Squids and cuttles tend to have to fend for themselves, even as naive developing eggs.
