Both Puddles and Beldar were VERY nocturnal and did not come out until about 3:00 AM. I don't have great photos of them but have linked their names to their journals.

Judging by arm length, not a Callistoctopus. Front two are long, but sides and rear are longer. I will concede to O. bocki.

See if you can get a clear view of the eyes. O. bocki has kind of slightly flattened ovals that I liken to truck tires (also, we have seen a lot of them -- relatively speaking -- over the last year or so.)
