Octopuses, Octopi, and Octopodes

Octopi are probably one of my favorite invertebrates. Their intelligence and capabilities have made them one most interesting of the sea creatures  and has given them a long history with mythological proportions.

Sometimes when I’m out the field working on equipment I find these creatures lurking around gate operators that we haven’t installed. When I find them, they sort of freak me out because they are so unexpected.

Octopi are not limited to attacking Power Masters but they seem to be associated with a lot of Power Master installations. Recently we did come across one attacking a Door King!
