Terrific Tentacles

Terrific Tentacles

These graceful and highly intelligent sea creatures have always fascinated me. For some time as a child I found them frightening too – does anyone remember an old film where a pearl diver is grabbed by a giant octopus? From memory, he just about made it out of the clutches of the octopus, thanks to much wriggling and stabbing with his oyster knife. Here’s my latest collection (scroll to bottom for source links).

I don’t recall the movie you mentioned, but I am reminded of the Roy Orbison song entitled LEAH.
