Female octopuses go to extra lengths when stretching their arms to reach food, a study has found.

Scientists in Italy measured octopuses' arm extensions as they reached up a tube towards tasty bait.

They found for the first time that octopuses' arm elongation ability differed depending on their sex and size.
