Animals with More than One Heart

Octopus or Squid

enter image description here
Octopus and Squid have 3 hearts in total, 1 systematic to go along with two 'gill hearts' that force blood to the gills.

An earthworm has 5 arches or hearts that are segmented and pump blood throughout its body.


enter image description here
The hagfish has 4 of them, one main 3 chambered systematic heart and 3 accessory pumps.

Octopuses and squids have one primary heart to pump oxygenated blood throughout their bodies and two more operational hearts to pump blood to their gills. Earthworms have five hearts, called aortic arches, one to pump blood through each segment of their bodies. The unique hagfish has between five and 15 pairs of gills and four hearts. One heart acts as the primary pump, and the other four supplement it when needed.
