My former student Matt Hoy sent me this sad story:
After catching an octopus, holidaymaker Labros Hydras followed local tradition by killing it and taking it to a taverna to be served for his supper.
That is when he discovered this was no ordinary specimen – it was a ‘hexapus’ with only six legs instead of the usual eight. – Mail Online.
Henry the Hexapus met with a kinder fate.
