Octopus gifts are popular with steampunk lovers as this fabulous creature represents the industrial revolution. It could be to do with the way that it moves mechanically or appears to be wearing steampunk goggles! They also influenced the Kracken – the giant mythical sea monster of Norweigan folklore and fantasy.
But lets get technical about tentacles….Octopuses have arms not tentacles. That’s because tentacles only have suckers at the ends whereas appendages that have suckers going all the way up are called arms. Squid and cuttlefish have 2 tentacles and 8 arms. My D&D playing scientist husband has just put me right on that one. So don’t get your tentacles in a twist!
