I’ll Have A Stack O’ Flapjacks Please


What is this little dude?

None other than a Flapjack Octopus, now starring at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.


First photo as seen here by MBARI. Second photo ©Monterey Bay Aquarium/Tyson V. Rininger. Jennifer A. reports: “I want to go under the waves for Sea Snorgling with Squeedorable Cephalopods!” Sounds like a PLAN.



  1. O M G!!! (I love my cephalopods) The little octopus earsies!

  2. It sort of looks like a deflated hippo in the first picture.

    I love cephapods! 💕 😍
    But…does anyone else think that second photo is a little…freaky?! 😬

  6. Kind of a deflated mini-blorp!

  7. Sea snorgling……Is that a new cuteological classification? It SHOULD be. [Peers over tops of spectacles in scholarly fashion].

  8. Adorable….first pic looks like he is clasping his hands in front of him (her?)!!

  9. Lil’ Cthulhu?
