    Aloha all~

    I need to find out if the funnel is located ONLY on one side if the animal or the other. In all of my dive pics it seems to be on the left. Is this true for all? Or is it a genetic roll of the dice which side it lands on?

    Mahalo~

    Ha, just thought of this... I guess it all depends on what the octopus personally considers to be THEIR front.

    Except in the GPO (at least I only know it to be fixed in the GPO, there may well be a host of others), the siphon can be moved at will from one side to the other.
