How Spineless of Us

It has come to our attention that there is a serious shortage of posts featuring baby blobby cephalopods hitching rides on hermit crabs. So here you go.

Squid pro quo, Shannon J.

    I must remember to download this week’s cephalo-podcast.

  11. Well, octopuses are smart. This one is clearly demonstrating that, getting transportation with no effort.

    By the way, the word “octopus” is derived from the Greek, not the Latin. So plural forms like “octi” or “octopi” are incorrect; just add the “s” (or in this case “es”) at the end like you would most other English words. The more you know!

  12. thought it was octopodes?

    Me, too, TL, me, too.

  14. Not. that. cute.

    I beg to differ. Little beady eyes are little beady eyes, whatever the species.
