FUN FACT: These eggs are evil. Octopus babies are evil. Let me tell you why. The octopus mother lays her eggs in a cave roof and spends 6 months guarding them from potential predators and swaying the eggs with her tentacle so they get oxygen. This means she doesn’t eat or sleep until they hatch. When the octopus babies hatch, she dies from fatigue and starvation. THEN THEY FUCKING EAT HER. THEY EAT THEIR MOTHER WHO DIED BECAUSE SHE WAS LOOKING AFTER THEM. THEY. EAT. HER.
This sounds like what my mother said i did to her
Moon Crabs have great, big paddles on the end of each of their thick, rather flattened legs.
They can use them to swim if they want, but what they really like to do is use their feet like shovels to bury themselves in sand at the drop of a hat.
Also they use their legs to add a bit of colour to their otherwise drab, sandy appearance. If you got shovels for feet, flaunt it. I guess.
