The octopus has always fascinated me. They’re a little bit creepy and more than a little bit awesome. They look like something that should have been featured on Star Trek – the first series.
Octopuses have three hearts and blue blood. As if that isn’t enough to be totally cool, they also have the ability to regenerate a tentacle should one be lost. They actually smell through the 1,600 cups on the arms, so they actually smell with their arms! They also have the ability to change colors with even more intensity than the chameleon.
The octopus is destined for a future book and is, as yet, unnamed.
