Sept 26th, 2017: Enteroctopus dofleini

That’s a fancy name for a bigassed Pacific Octopus.

Washington-based woodcarver Jeffrey Michael Samudosky has been creating elaborate figural works from a variety of Pacific Northwest trees since he started his company JMS Wood Sculpture in 1998. One of his most recent projects is a replica of an Enteroctopus dofleini, or Giant Pacific Octopus, carved from a fallen Redwood given to him by Redwood Burl.

The cephalopod’s tentacles curve and twist their way across areas which Samudosky left natural, including the entire back of the trunk which gives the illusion that the octopus is on top of the tree, rather than a part of it.

Samudosky has previously carved deep sea diving helmets, rams, and bears twice his size. You can explore more of the self-taught woodworker’s pieces on his website.

Hmm, 270 suckers per arm, that's a lot of suck. I guess as they grow the suckers get bigger rather than more numerous? At least the suckers don't have hooks like squid.
