Two Spot Octopus by FamiliarOddlings Two Spot Octopus by FamiliarOddlings
Say hello to Aglaya, the two spot octopus!

The California two spot octopus (Octopus bimaculoides) is the most common species of octopus kept as a pet. They are very active, friendly, and inventive. Here is my artistic representation of one, taking, ahem, artistic liberties with the coloration. :D

Needle felted wool over pipe cleaner with paper clay eyes and beak. Stands at about 8 inches with a diameter of 12 inches when tentacles are spread.

Not for sale yet 'cause I want to put her in an exhibition I'm having this summer. :) But check out my etsy shop for other interesting things: [link]
