(not octopi octopuses is correct when referring to different species)
Blanket octopuses are a genus of pelagic (open water) octopuses that live in most tropical oceans. They get the name blanket due to the fact that the females have long webbing on their tentacles which looks like a blanket. These species exhibit extreme sexual dimorphism as the females are alot bigger than males and have the webbing, whereas males are a few centimeters long and have no webbing. This webbing is used as a defense mechanism, when a predator approaches the female she unveils her webbing making her look alot bigger. They also have the Badass property of being immune to the Portuguese man o war’s toxin and actually rip off their tentacles and use them for defensive purposes.

Fanmade shirt left on a lightpole just feet from where Mitch Lucker had his accident. I broke down when i saw that Mitch Lucker’s mom held the shirt as if it where Mitch himslef. It was a tragic day or millions and my condolences go out to the family, friends, fans, and the Suicide Silence family. Mitch was one of the greatest Vacalists/Performers Ive ever seen and its really sad to see another talented musician gone. R.I.P. Mitch Lucker. You will always be in our hearts!
