Poison Dart Octopus by MegLyman Poison Dart Octopus by MegLyman
The options are endless when it comes to octopus skin. I've been inspired to do a few cephalopods based on poison dart frogs. Here's the first, based on the Harlequin, Dendrobates histrionicus.

There are about a million color morphs for each species of poison dart frog. It's so cool!

Awesome.
The really cool thing is that some octopi would be able to change that colour.

Just so you know, my fetishes have nothing to do with my love of mollusks. ;)

aw, it's adorable!
several rainforest dwellers would tip their darts with poison by poking the frog with the end of it; hence the name ';poison dart frog'. <3
