A Giant Pacific Octopus was found washed ashore on Clam Beach this morning. Outpost reader Karina Junge sent in these photos.
“The first picture has a sand-dollar next to the octopus for size comparisons,” she said in her email. “Seeing this big guy was a first for me!”
While this specimen is indeed quite large, and remarkably intact, Giant Pacific Octopus sightings are not particularly uncommon on the Humboldt County coast, as documented over at iNaturalist.org.
