Tree Octopus

Apparently, eggs in the Hood Canal hatch and the young octopi make homes in the trees. Supposedly the moistness of the air and an adaptation make it possible for them to live outside the water. They use their suckers and arms to climb the trees and prey on insects, frogs and rodents. You might be wondering why you’ve never seen one, but they apparently use their color changing abilities to stay incognito. They return to the Sound only to breed.
