BEAULIEU-SUR-MER, - A woman participating in an aquabike lesson in France said she was attacked by an octopus that immobilized her legs with its tentacles.
The woman, whose name was not released, said she was aquabiking -- riding an exercise bike submerged in water -- in Beaulieu-sur-Mer when she felt something moving around her legs, The Local.fr reported Friday.
The woman soon discovered an octopus had wrapped its tentacles around her legs, stopping her from pedaling.
Experts said the octopus was likely attracted by the movement in the water.
Does Laz have an alibi?
Maybe the octopus was just annoyed by the woman and wanted her to stop.
I could make an excellent pasta with that baby, (the Octopus, not the woman..Smirk :)
And the octopus says,
“Stop pedaling, woman! You are missed your turn and are two hundred yards off the road and are parked in my front yard!
Plus, you are scaring all the fish away.”
Another “never used before” sentence.
"..I'll check for damage....again, this may take some time and several dives.......but I will eventually get to the bottom....of this"
if that is her...I’d wrap my tentacles around her legs too
i mean..did the octopus..a male one obviously...really have a choice in the matter?
My guess as well, though it could also be that it was "playing with her," or even trying to figure out what she was doing, though octopi are extremely shy. I've seen stories about how intelligent and inquisitive they can be. But most likely you're correct.
Why would anyone do this?
This story’s got legs.
It's very theraputic.
I guess we’ll call you Dr. Octopussy.
“Aqua biking is a new sport trend. It is gentle to your joints and leaves no pity for your cellulite and abs. Aqua biking involves riding a bicycle in water which will sculpt your legs and improve your body without pain. It is an ideal sport for those who love water sports.”
Monique Junot: I figured if we had nothing to say to each other he would get bored; go away. But instead he uses it as an excuse to put his testicles all over me.
Lane Myer: Excuse me?
Monique Junot: You know, like octopus? Testicles?
Lane Myer: Ohhhh. Tentacles. N-T. Tentacles; big Difference.
It's very theraputic.
And much more satisfying than leaning against the washing machine with an unbalanced load.
If they have kids she will be....Octo-mom.
