Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, the giant octopus must hit a Medium-size or smaller opponent with a tentacle rake attack. If it gets a hold, it can constrict.

Constrict (Ex): A giant octopus deals 2d8+6 points of damage with a successful grapple check against Medium-size or smaller creatures.

Ink Cloud (Ex): A giant octopus can emit a cloud of jet-black ink 20 feet high by 20 feet wide by 20 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): A giant octopus can jet backward once a round as a double move action, at a speed of 200 feet.

Skills: A giant octopus can change colors, giving it a +4 racial bonus to Hide checks.
