(CC-BY-SA 3.0; built on photograph by Seeeko, Wikipedia) It looks like a can-can dancer!

Based on photographs in PLOS ONE article: Caldwell RL, Ross R, Rodaniche A, Huffard CL (2015) Behavior and Body Patterns of the Larger Pacific Striped Octopus. PLoS ONE 10(8): e0134152. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0134152; see all the figures and artwork!

 The body language of animals makes for fascinating reading

So, ready for some tête-à-tête? You have a choice, of course. Just don’t go all Nosferato! Rather get lost, then. 🙂
