With a giant rounded head to hold an active and resourceful brain, large observant eyes to stalk its prey, and 8 curled appendages, this realistic stuffed animal can just as easily be found prowling the ocean deep as it could be found in your toy chest. At 12 inches long, this octopus measures up to the real deal; in the wild, octopi can grow to be anywhere from 12-36 inches long. Skilled at evading attackers, these clever creatures can blend into their surroundings or squeeze into small, tight spaces when predators swim past. This ocean animal would make a great gift for all ages as well as an excellent addition to your science classroom. Wild Republic has been developing animal plush and educational toys for kids of all ages since 1979, with a unique specialization in realistic stuffed animals.
