These tentacular Octopus and Giant Squid tables are the work of San Francisco-based bronze sculptor Kirk McGuire. The beautiful bronze cephalopods are so lifelike, we wouldn’t be surprised if you felt phantom tentacles tickling your ankles while sitting at either of these tables.

This male Crepidual has unfortunately stumbled across a pack of ravenous spear prods. Spear prods are pack hunting monopods. Using their spear like “leg” in conjunction with a highly specialized internal balancing organ, spear prods catapult themselves and glide as a means of locomotion. Stealth hunters, when not in the move they are rather sedate, sitting and waiting for their next meal. Multi serrated mouth parts make their bite quite devastating, leaving massive lesions in their prey.
Crepidual are Protandrous Hermaphrodites. Born asexual. As they develop their first stage in life is male. Once large enough they will become female. Females are nearly twice the size of their male counterparts.
Do to the size disparity male are unable to mount their behemoth brides. The Horn like protuberance, though used for defense in females, actually houses the genitalia of the Crepidual during the male stage of life. The fan like genitalia can extend twice the length of his body to reach his mate’s gonopore at the base of her abdomen. As he develops into a female, the male genitalia will begin to shrink and keratin will turn the once hollow genital capsule into a thick strong horn.
