Lucky number eight

Most of you will be reading this post on 8/8, so here are some animals appropriate for that date!

Woody Chiton (Mopalia lignosa)

Soft coral (Cryptophyton goddardi

Red Octopus (Octopus rubescens

Did you see all of the "eights"?  Eight chiton plates, eight coral tentacles.  The eight octopus arms weren't visible, but you know they're there.  Eight is a lucky number to be associated with!
