Henry the Hexapus

This six-legged octopus- the first ever known to science -was hauled in from a catch off of the coast of Wales. His lack of two limbs appear to be the result of a birth defect not an insurgent IED.

The hexapus has been named “Henry” and now resides at the Blackpool Sea Life Centre in Northwest England.

    Well he certainly looks more cute than he does defective to me.

    But then, I always -did- have strange tastes…

    Wanted to repost this wonderful Henry the Hexapus song from Monkey Filter:

    The Hexapus Blues

    Oh, Henry the six-legged octopus,
    They say he had six tentacles.
    I saaaaaaid Henry the six-legged octopus,
    They say he had six tentacles.
    And if he only had five, Lord,
    They say he’d look like a pentacle.

    Oh, Henry the six-legged octopus,
    Can’t take his picture with a flash.
    Oh, yes, Henry the six-legged octopus,
    Can’t take his gol-darn picture with a flash.
    I’d tell you what would happen,
    But I ain’t no Ogden Nash.

    Oh, Henry the six-legged octopus,
    Found him in a lobster pot.
    Oh Loooord, Henry the six-legged octopus,
    Them Welshies found him in a lobster pot.
    And when they got a look at him, boy,
    Six tentacles was all he got.
