Octopus and Squid: On the diversity of Cephalopoda and the adorability thereof

Look at this octopus!

It looks like a baby elephant only with bigger, cuter eyes!

And instead of a trunk it has eight tentacles coming out of its face!

And instead of a large body it has a small blob!

And instead of legs it has nothing!

It's SO ADORABLE!

Look at this squid!

It looks like a walking stick only with eyes!

And instead of wood it's made of transparent flesh!

And instead of no stomach it has a stomach!

And instead of doing nothing it swims with a wobbly fin!

It's SO... UNCONVENTIONAL!

@TexWisGirl: :D

@Daniel Berke: It's like they took something adorable and removed all the bits that weren't adorable enough!
