    well due to the mention of sasquatch in the artical the whole idea is false... and anything they say later in life... even if they are being maulled by a sasquatch and a tree octopus at the same time... they are still lying

    I LOVE THE TREE OCTOPUS! Yeah, it's false, but it's a great site. They went into alot of detail making this beleivable. I want a tree octopus of my own!

    So does this mean that there's no Giant Saharan Sand Squid? Nuts.

    i dont know about you, but when i was at loc ness feeding the monster, i saw many of the temperate specis of tree octopus, the only sad thing is that they are constantly preyed upon by the lepricons and knomes in the aera.

    That's ridiculous, everyone knows leprecons are extinct.

    Oh Yee of Little Faith!

    The Tree Octopus is very real; here in Griffith Park they have the semi-desert variety: the Prickly-Pear Octopus!

    Its pretty easy to get them to stop ruining lawns, just stuff burlap down the holes.

    hmmm, I never thought of that... pictures are always very convincing. Now you've got me confused Righty... my teacher told me they were fake, but pictures don't lie! I will go in search of these elusive creatures... I will return in three months after a 500 mile trek in the wilderness! :rainbow:

    (by the way, I think we need to show that we support these endangered species by putting the pink tentacle on our site :wink: )

    There is a PT on my site!

    Make sure you do a decent control when you go on your trek - sit in the same place for three months. Don't invalidate your efforts!
