Halloween Countdown 2009: Monster #2

Known as "Ducktopus" to residents living near seaside Oso Flaco Lake, this strange creature was first mentioned in the Spring 1974 issue of Strange but Really Real Science magazine.

Further reports have been sparse, lending most in the really really real scientific community to posit that the creature was not a monster and, barring a complete fabrication of the story, was in fact an ordinary octopus eating or resting on top of a dead seagull, duck or other local water fowl.

As if an octopus eating a duck/goose/seagull/swan is any less disturbing or scary... ;)

Seriously, a feathered cephalopod freaks me right out...

Quackthulhu! This is what happens when Disney gets the rights to H.P. Lovecraft's writings!

Great Job!

Man, we really need to align the stars and raise Cthulhu out of the sea quick. Looks like he was getting a tad bit too lonely and mated with a duck/goose/seagull/swan-like organism!

Thanks you Shawn...finally some sense...mixing freakin cephalopods with any other creature is just a crime against humanity. For SHAME, Bubbashelby. FOR SHAME. You can't be giving these crazy squid geneticists any ideas.

Azoth and Cal - what can I say, Halloween is supposed to be scary and freaky ;)
