So I was studying Cephalopods in Science yesterday, and after browsing a few Adventure time blogs I suddenly got an idea.
Thus this guy was born, His name is Octopus prince and he lives in the Undersea Kingdom, which is occupied by various aquatic creatures and is separated over quite a few provinces. He rules over Squid Land, which basically hosts a bunch of sentient cephalopods and a few fish.
He’s really grumpy and rude a lot of the time, and he has the ability to use his tentacles (Both in his hair and legs) To grab things, and shoot ink from various places when frightened or something.
he’s also a bad guy who wants to flood the land, he comes close a few times but is always thwarted by either his own recklessness or others.
(He also only has three fingers on each hand ahahaha)
He’s the cutest OctoPrince ever! <3
I don’t even have words for how badly I wish this was an actual Adventure Time character ;__;
^ This. ;3;
The coconut octopus (Amphioctopus marginatus) is a medium-sized cephalopod belonging to the genus Amphioctopus. It is found in tropical waters of the western Pacific Ocean. It commonly preys upon shrimp, crabs, and clams, and displays unusual behaviour, including bipedal walking (walking on two ‘feet’) and gathering and using coconut shells and seashells for shelter.
In March 2005, researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, published an article in Science where A. marginatus was reported to have a bipedal behaviour i.e. it “walked” on the sea floor like a human would. It is one of only two octopus species known to display this behaviour.
Researchers from the Melbourne Museum in Australia observed the creature’s use of tools for defense, and the use of available debris to create a defensive fortress. The researchers filmed A. marginatus collecting coconut shells, discarded by humans, from the sea floor, carrying them up to 20 meters, and arranging the shells to form a spherical hiding place akin to a clamshell.
I have a favorite now.
