The 96 Tentacled Nonagintasextopus.
Only four of these strange animals have ever been caught, leading some to believe they’re merely mutant octopi. Genetic study however suggests that they’re a distinct species more closely related to the nautilus than the common octopus.
The nonagintasextopus is unique in that it groots in the benthic soil like a tree with its tentacles as the roots. The nonagintasextopus also squirts a sweet syrup instead of ink which is said to taste strongly of maple. And finally and perhaps most interesting of all, the nonagintasextopus has been seen using tools underwater, suggesting extremely high intelligence. The tools are limited to Black & Decker, suggesting the nonagintasextopus knows value when it sees it.
