Is it common using "which" in the sentence? The octopus is one of many creatures which, whose look unappealing, are actually quite tasty. Second, I want to know if "whose look unappealing" is correct? Third, what kind of clause is this (adjective clause, noun clause,or adverb caluse)?

"The octopus is one of many creatures who, while they look unappealing, are actually quite tasty" This sounds much better to me. The point of the sentence is to point out the contrast between the look of the creature (bad) and their taste (good). The previous sentence did not do that correctly.

The octopus is one of many creatures, whose look is unappealing, are actually quite tasty. "whose look is unappealing" is a non-defining relative clause, which gives extra information about the object.
