31058 - Cuttlefish




Alternate  #8 for 31058 - Cuttlefish
These are fascinating creatures. There are indications that they are highly intelligent. They can change colors in strobing patterns, and they use that for camouflage, capturing prey and apparently - communication.
When I look at these, I don't wonder why the most demonic or alien creatures are pictured as tentacled monstrosities - and I am not alone in that - check out this comic by XKCD

 - Two large tentacles complete with claws
 - 4 small prehensile tentacles around mouth.
 - I endavoured to try and simulate the peripheral fin that cephaplopds have around their heads. 
 - Sturdy, Posable and Playable - and educational ;)

I edited the fourth, odd tentacle to be the same as the others (and just as movable) using pieces from another 3-in-1 set.
