What kind of mouth does an octopus have? The octopus has a hidden mouth in the center of its web of eight tentacles.

What is an octopus beak called? All extant cephalopods have a two-part beak, or rostrum, situated in the buccal mass and surrounded by the muscular head appendages. The dorsal (upper) mandible fits into the ventral (lower) mandible and together they function in a scissor-like fashion. The beak may also be referred to as the mandibles or jaws.
