The Cephalopod Chronicles
Eight-legged adventures around the world

Some of you may ask, "what the hell is up with that stuffed octopus?" Excellent question!

The Octopus is an adventurer, an explorer, a world traveler--a true New World cephalopod. He's travelled extensively in North America and Europe, experienced the great outdoors, and visited some of the most prestigious academic institutions in the world. He seeks to go where no octopus has gone before, and does it without expending any energy whatsoever. Although He weighs in at a mere 4oz and is primarily composed of synthetic fibers, His achievements rival those of many sentient bipeds.

He is unique and irreplaceable, but His polyester brethren are available through Folkmanis Puppets.
