Hook up this ami octi with socks to keep its tentacles toasty.

Octopuses aren’t known for wearing socks but we’re sure they’d love a few pairs to put on when the water’s a bit chilly. And what fun for us humans to decide which sock goes on which tentacle! We’d be ten-tickled all over to receive this socktopus!
