The octopus is one of my favorite pieces to create. The freedom of the tentacles is what I love about making them. It is considered the most intelligent of all invertebrates, the common octopus is found in the tropical and temperate waters of the world’s oceans. They can grow to about 4.3 feet in length and weigh up to 22 pounds, although averages are much smaller. They prey on crabs, crayfish, and mollusks, and will sometimes use their ink to disorient their victims before attacking. What an Graceful and elegant creature.
