While driving through Milwaukee last week after hiking in Waukesha County I spotted this octopus.

No, there aren't octopi in the Great Lakes.  Tell me you've seen the video of the Octopus carrying around the coconut shell, I love that video!

Even better was this Maldives Octopus video which shows them mating, and also feeding and sleeping habits.  Too cool!  Don't believe that bit about the size hole they can get through?  Watch this video.

YouTube is one crazy place, because then I saw a video where an octopus steals a guy's camera and when he eventually catches up to it and gets it back the octopus latches on to his speargun and won't let go so he takes it along for a ride.

Enough about the wonderful world of octopi, if you want to see more murals head over to Monday Mural.


  1. This is fun. Looks like the eye of the octopus is an air vent. Clever. Thanks for contributing to this week's Monday Mural.
