The largest of the known octopus species, the Giant Pacific Octopus is an intelligent creature capable of opening jars, solving various tests, and escaping or dismantling its enclosures. Some researchers even believe they are capable of having a personality!
Scientific Name: Enteroctopus dofleini
Characteristics: This professionally-sculpted and hand-painted model captures the Giant Pacific Octopus’ sprawling body, including its eight arms lined with hooked suction cups, striking yellow eyes, and expansive head. Like other octopuses, the Giant Pacific variation can alter its skin texture to provide exceptional camouflage, making them both effective predators and elusive prey.
Size and Color: Colored in the creature's natural reddish-orange hue and measuring 2 inches tall and 8 inches in diameter, this figurine is as wide as a piece of legal-sized paper and about as tall as a stick of lip balm. Wherever you display it, make sure that this clever cephalopod doesn't have a chance to blend into its surroundings and stay out of sight!
