Remeber our post about the octopus that had 96 tentacles? Well here is another one that only has 85. Captured in 1957 on Toshijima Island ALSO had 8 tentacles that branced out into more.

In the 50 years since the 85-tentacled octopus was captured, the Toba Aquarium (where this is kept now in storage) has exhibited 6 other mutant octopi, most of them alive for a time, and each with between 9 and 56 tentacles.
