Amigurumi DUMBO OCTOPUS - crochet
The natural world is full of adorbs, like this cute dumbo octopus. Crocheted from vintage orange yarn with yellow fuzzies. Once this yarn is gone, it's gone. This octobaby is approximately 2 1/2" tall, 2" wide Because each one is handmade, allow for variations. Grimpoteuthis are commonly called dumbo octopuses because of their ear-like fins. Most species of grimpoteuthis live at great depths, so deep very little light penetrates. So instead of inking predators, dumbo octopuses can very effectively change their skin color and hide. They live the deepest of any known octopuses. These guys are made with button eyes, making them unsafe for children (but still perfect for scientists).
