Replicated down to the tee, the eight tentacles on this exceptionally detailed Octopus figurine features impressive and realistically designed suction cups, with ridges on its eyes that hints of the Giant Pacific Octopus. Like all PAPO figurines, this Octopus is made from non-toxic plastic and is BPA and phthalate-free, and is the perfect first addition to any marine life collection.
OMINOUS OCTOPUS FACTS!
• ALL OCTOPUSES ARE VENOMOUS. Yikes. Fortunately, only a few species have enough venom to injure or kill a human being.
• Also, a hungry adult octopus will not be shy about consuming young octopi. In fact, a study published in the March 2008 edition of Marine and Freshwater Behaviour and Physiology described a female octopus that attacked, suffocated, and spent two days eating a male who'd just mated with her 13 times over a 3.5-hour period.
