Whew, what a great #CephalopodWeek! Thanks to @scifri for organizing and to everyone for sharing in the ceph love. Now we’re gonna take a cue from these pyjama squid hatchlings and zzz... #naptime #zzzephalopod #montereybayaquarium

A few more small Octopus wet specimens are now available in the shop, halfembalmed.etsy.com or click the link in my bio. 🐙

Look up! Have you spotted the giant octopus model at the Museum? 🐙

It’s currently on display in our What is an Animal? exhibition, but it has a long and fascinating history: this giant papier-mâché octopus appeared in the Anthropological Building of the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. The man who made the model—James Henry Emerton, an arachnologist and scientific illustrator—never saw a live specimen of this animal, a giant octopus from the Pacific Ocean off California (Enteroctopus dofleini). Emerton had to rely on studying specimens preserved in alcohol; he used measurements of an octopus reported in a scientific paper as the guide for its size. And he made it life sized! The arms on the model span 18 feet in diameter.
One of the challenges of studying animals like cephalopods is that the preserved specimens can look dramatically different than they do in life (well, when you think about it, live octopuses can look dramatically different from one minute to the next). If you want to get someone interested in octopuses, a preserved specimen is not the way to do it. Models like the giant papier-mâché octopus were used to show these amazing animals in all their molluscan glory to people who otherwise wouldn’t see one in the wild—like visitors to the World’s Fair in 1893, and perhaps visitors to The Field Museum today! We have other models in What is an Animal? that most people don’t recognize for what they are. Do you know this Museum secret?

Cuttlefish can camouflage themselves by changing color to fit their surroundings. That’s a neat trick for a cephalopod that’s colorblind! #CephalopodWeek

We’re still celebrating #CephalopodWeek. Today, let’s dance with this beautiful octopus, photographed by @gaby_barathieu_photography #OurOcean #MarineLife #UnderwaterPhotographer

🐙You will find #cephalopods like #octopuses both in and out of water at Shedd! Swipe left to see the octopus that "lives" in our facade and one of the three octopuses draped over the chandeliers in our entrance hall. What's your favorite architectural detail at Shedd? #CephalopodWeek

Happy #CephalopodWeek! Today we're taking a look at the Museum's giant squid.
The Museum’s specimen is a sexually mature male that measures 25 feet long, with eyes that are 6 inches across. The giant squid’s arms and tentacles are dotted with rows of sharp-toothed suckers, with which the animal can grab its prey.
Click the link in our profile and watch a video about how the Museum got its elusive specimen in 1998.

Check out this giant Pacific octopus that was spotted in NOAA Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary​! This footage was taken from a recent research cruise with Marine Applied Research and Exploration - MARE​ using remotely operated vehicles. The octopus was in Santa Cruz Canyon off the Channel Islands, at about 100 meters below the surface!

The nifty nautilus gets around using jet propulsion! By expelling water from its mantle cavity through a siphon, it propels through the ocean, changing the direction of its siphon to “steer.” Look out, ceph coming through! #CephalopodWeek #nautilus #montereybayaquarium #animalradical #oceans #Tiffieldtwins2 #regrann

A bit late for #cephalopodweek , but here is a stack of cuddling pyjama squid! They're actually cuttlefish, although their name suggests otherwise. Inspired by a photo from Monteray Bay Acquarium, although I changed some of the squids. Swipe to see the doodle on a phone case, tote, duvet, and more!
