"This beautiful octopus (Graneledone boreopacifica) was observed by ROPOS during cable route surveys between Endeavour Node and the north Regional Circulation Mooring (RCM) instrument platform at Endeavour Ridge, 20 September 2010. (N47° 58.1264′ W129° 2.8567′, depth: 2327m )"
Hot dog octopuses are super easy to make. Cut the bottom 3/4 into 8 slices to make the tentacles. Boil the hot dog like normal and the legs will spread out naturally. You can use this idea to also make crabs. Cut both sides 1/4 of the way through but only in four pieces. After boiling the hot dog will look like a crab.
