    I have seen a few sites portraying them, and don't get me wrong they look lovely, and in need of protection, but I don't want to be concerned about "bigfoot or nessie"

    Re: Pacific Tree Octo

    Neptune,

    The Pacific tree octopus is a myth. However, on the basis of your avatar, I think we can confirm the existence of the Floridian reef bunny.

    Sideways,

    At first glance I wasn't sure the photo was legitimate, but it has a date stamp, so it must be real.

    Have the bunnies infested your billiards table? They eat slate, you know.

    :wink:

    "Great news Captain, Ochi has been contained."

    "Skipper did you see that thing eatting that huge egg. What was in that huge egg????"

    This was only a test...

    I think its a hoax, how could the octopus stay alive away from saltwater and looking so...normal. Also, the picture on the website shows the octo putting an orange colour, this would make it very vunerable to predators such as birds of prey. What could they eat? crabs in bromeliads? Highly unlikely.

    We've found quite alot of new creatures, sea bunnies, badgers...what next?

    http://zapatopi.net/treeoctopus.html

    just a link to what I have seen. my wife swears she saw a documentary on US TV about these guys! I have searched everywhere and can not find the schedule info. I will keep looking tough! :)


    :lol: Colin, my friend, I said I didn't want to be concerned! Nessie has a lot of water to hide in, so much in fact that they cant find her. Bigfoot same problems lots of woods. However, this octo is indigenous to only a small part of forest that are getting cut down way to fast. Would hate to know they USED to exist!

    This is no way an endorsement of my beliefs LOL

    Brings to mind the sad tale of the greater American unicorn, which is thought to have become extinct in 1907 after the last trees of Minnesota's Enchanted Forest were felled.

    Habitat destruction sucks. For real.
