Octopus have always held a special place in my mind. They are the most slippery looking creatures, making their way into small nooks and crannies. They love to hide and spring from their lair to catch their prey. I love to watch them move along as well, using their bodies like a torpedo. They open up wide and then shoot forward with their legs snapping together with great force. Always beautiful, sometimes creepy, the octopus is right up there in the sea creatures, at least in my mind.
