One time, I found a small octopus inside a shell I had picked up. I slid it out onto the palm of my hand. It sat there a moment and then slithered across my hand back into the water. It was so amazing. Ever since that time, I've been captivated by these intelligent, beautiful, and sometimes deadly, creatures.
I'm not alone...from fairy tales to scary classics, in books and movies, octopus have played a big part in many legends.....
