I think the new Samsung smartphones are about the size of a doggy door, so if that is the standard we are going by here...

I once had calamari that made a similar exit.

"this would be like me trying to fit my wife into her wedding dress"  "HEY!"

Pretty damn funny

It was kinda gross, when it was popping the legs out, sucker-by-sucker on the outside of the gunwale.  However, it was worth it to observe the savvy of a wild creature.

Ugh.  That was like watching the placenta come out, only with tentacles.

ThurmanMerman: Ugh.  That was like watching the placenta come out, only with tentacles.


And just as potentially delicious

Placentas don't have tentacles?

I wonder if it was entirely uninjured by this.

It's things like this that make me go diving.

There are lots of different sized dogs.

That was better than the Deer Fight Club video above...

Octopuses are pretty much only constrained by the diameter of their eyeballs. If the eyes fit through, the rest of the body can as well.

All I could think of.. is that octopus was freaked out, unable to breathe... desperate to find water... trying to squeeze through that little opening or die.

Yes, I'm fun at parties.

Are their eyes larger than their beaks? I can't imagine squashing your eye would be fun, but possible and survivable, as opposed to crushing your chitinous beak.

Their beaks might be as long as their eyes, but they are narrower in one direction. I think the eyes are larger because of the overall spherical shape.

Pffff.  Clearly you did not recognize the species.  That was a Pacific Northwestern Tree Octopus.  Sort of like how some hermit crabs are totally aquatic, and some live on land.

The texture is like eating a bath mat and the flavor is nonexistent; not sure why I still like it though.

I think the constraint is their beak. If their beak fits, they'll fit.

Those who have never seen a living octopus can scarcely imagine the strange horror of its appearance. The peculiar V-shaped mouth with its pointed upper lip, the absence of brow ridges, the absence of a chin beneath the wedgelike lower lip, the incessant quivering of this mouth, the Gorgon groups of tentacles, the tumultuous breathing of the lungs in a strange atmosphere, the evident heaviness and painfulness of movement out of the water-above all, the extraordinary intensity of the immense eyes-were at once vital, intense, inhuman, crippled and monstrous. There was something fungoid in the oily brown skin, something in the clumsy deliberation of the tedious movements unspeakably nasty. Even at this first encounter, this first glimpse, I was overcome with disgust and dread.

Alien 1 "Hey, look at that human trying to survive"
Alien 2 "Yeah, they are pretty resourceful"
Alien 1 "This is fun to watch what they will do in extreme situations"
Alien 2 "ooops, now their mating again"
Alien 1 "..and again"
