Last week I linked to a video in which a crafty octopus perpetrated a heist, stealing a video camera while it was still recording. I also ran a poll so the people could decide Octopus: Threat or Menace?
The poll is now closed and the results are in. As we can see, octopoids are our friends.
Octopus is pleased.
He is so pleased that today we’re going to explore some links that conform to an octopus theme.
This first link came over Twitter from Debra Eve and showcases the Octopus Table by Isaac Kraus. This amazing work of art weighs 500 lbs. and is perfect for tea with Cthulhu. Thanks for the link, Debra!
We continue our sculpture theme by visiting the site of artist Scott Musgrove. The photos of “Walktopus” depict a work in progress, but it already impresses with its detailed suction cups and jaunty stride.
Next we investigate How Octopuses Work. This article provides a fascinating look at how these complex biological contraptions operate, complete with photo and video illustration.
If you have mad knitting skills, you too can make a Socktopus of your very own. Who wouldn’t want one of these at their side during troubled times?
As a bonus feature, watch in amazement as this intrepid young octopus heaves himself up to the world of sun and air, leaving some sort of crab offering before returning to the deep from whence he came.
