Octopus Mothers

Octopus mothers may lay anywhere between 50,000 and 200,000 eggs, depending on the species. And until these eggs hatch, the octopus mother will not let the eggs out of her sight. Although for most species this is one to two months, some take years. Some species also die after the process is over.
