Pictured above for those of you who don’t know, the keeper of Allen’s Zoo exploring one of my favorite places.

I saw something while exploring the intertidal zone today I’m not likely to see for a while again if at all. While looking at the usually seen inhabitants, (hermit crabs, starfish, sea urchins) I rounded a rock and saw what I initially thought was the largest starfish I’d ever seen. It was about two and a half feet long (.7 meters). My mind making sense of something I’d never seen in the wild. Then realized then it wasn’t a starfish. It was a Pacific Octopus. I recognized the coloration from images in books I’ve used as reference. Although I know they happen around these ocean zones I didn’t know if it was still alive. It was not in water. I reached for my camera then remembered took the batteries out yesterday as they needed to be replaced. I then thought it probably wasn’t alive and waiting for the tide like the other things in the intertidal zone. I thought it’d be sad to photograph it then.

Also……Happy Mothers Day mom and all moms.

Allen’s Zoo? I might have to have a look myself. Sounds like a great place. I am sorry about the dead Pacific Octopus, but I guess that is life – if I can put it that way. I love your sense of self-irony.

Thanks Otto..for both. I wonder from time to time if anyone notices my irony. Guess it takes a person of some sensitivity.
