a "TREE" octopus, really?
Posted on 23 July 2007
In a series of cascading events – loony subscribed to BNET, which introduced Pharyngula, who talked a little about some Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus, which piqued loony’s interest “Is there really a dry land octopus?” and clicked the link…
Call loony a frog under the well but mann…! She was SUPER SHOCKED when she saw the real picture of this “is this real?” dry-land octopus.
loony pondered: How did the octopus get to live on the trees? But but but ain’t we all taught that octopus live under the deep dark ocean? (and maybe that’s why they’re so hideous?)
Then loony decided that the picture looks a bit fake, so she went to look at other pictures… and screamed! Tree octopus is mind-bogging enough, and now a *BLUE* tree octopus which frankly speaking looked like a soft plush furry toy being put there on top of the tree???
< style="FONT-STYLE: italic">Tree octopus species (especially the endangered Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus) are some of the most elusive creatures known to Man. Not many researchers have managed to photograph them in the wild and those few in captivity tend to hide in inaccessible corners of their cages, as if purposefully avoiding the prying of humans.“
loony is verrryyyyyyyyy suspicious of this entire set up. Then loony flashed back on how the hell did she come across this information at first place: BNET wouldn’t introduce Pharyngula if he’s a fake; and since Pharyngula is a reputable blogger he will not mentioned tree octopus if this info is fake ‘cos it’ll make him look stupid; then loony decided that this is after all a genuine information; then since this is a nearly endangered species loony decided to support the shoutout to save the tree octopus!
(Note to all men: This is not the ususal way women’s thoughts are processed)
(Note to self: Seeing are not necessarily believing. A dose of skepticism are healthy for thy mind)
SO, loony’s blog’s dearest readers and fans, please do your bit and support the blue tree octopus cause. All you need to do is to post the picture up and linked back to the website anyway.
