The tree octopus is an octopus that lives part of its life in the moist, verdant rain forests of the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State.

Although, like all Cephalopods, it must be born in the water, and be constantly surrounded by a moist environment, the 200+ centimeters of rain that fall in the Olympic Forest per annum mean that the tree octopus often climbs into the woods at night to hunt insects.

The tree octopus is currently threatened from many directions, including destruction of its natural habitat, and poisoning from insecticide in its food supply. On the other hand, its largest natural predator, the sasquatch, is on the decline.
