Help me kill a lion. With a tentacle beast. Surely you are up to this challenge.
Two parts to this:
1) I am interested in more articles, videos, and photos of our friend the octopus doing stuff on land or interacting with land animals, especially defeating them in some way. Examples I currently have from stuff on the blue:
Octopus walking on land
So cool. It looks like a Chthuloid horror. I like it. It gets better at the walking thing over time, especially after it upchucks the crab.
octopus eating seagull
Article with pics of an octopus eating a seagull. It's awesome.
get it off my face
I really enjoyed this even though it is on a tiny scale of cat vs tentacle beast. But it rocks! (From this FPP)
2) I want to know how a tentacle beast (octopus, squid, chthuloid horror -- go nuts with this part) could defeat a lion in battle. Please supply either actual real world facts or creative stories.
I very much want the tentacle beast to win. All is fair in love and war so, you know, feel free to fight dirty here. Just make sure the lion gets what's coming to him. Mmmkay?
Some stuff I have already discussed with some folks: Some tentacle beasts are poisonous, so size is not necessarily that important. ( I mention this explicitly to make it clear that my title is intended somewhat humorously, though it's fine if you run some calculations and decide how big the tentacle beast must be to kill the lion, k?) Octopuses are known to survive for 30 minutes out of water but lions apparently don't do so well in water, so an octopus could handle the lion's environment better than the lion could handle the ocean.
Anyway: ding, ding ding! Fight! May the best tentacle beast win.
(No, this is not chat filter. I am writing a book...er, comic. Thanks.)
