Sunday Safari - A Tentacled Mystery

Victor Hugo, circa 1866, thanks to A Journey Round My Skull

This week's safari was delayed by a deadly mix of partying and massive heat wave.

Even before the immediate rise to fame of the Psychic Octopus, I've been among those
fascinated by this incredibly gifted, impressive and otherwordly creature... 
and I'm in good company, as you can see!

  1. This is a wonderful post. I came here through Pinterest, and just love cephalopods and art inspired by them.
