Friday Cephalopod: The spots just make it adorable

(via NatGeo)

The Friday cephalopod always makes me smile, but this one especially so.

Actually, what makes it adorable is the ratio of tentacle length to head/body and the size of the eyes, I think. Just like with a little kitten, a puppy or even a human baby. I know it as "Kindchenschema".

I second Flo. It's the same premise that Japanese "Chibi" style animation is based on.

That being said, it's the spots that make me SQUEE!
