The octopus (タコ, Tako?) is an ocean-going fish that can be caught from September to January and from March to July. Its first appearance was in the Japan-only Animal Forest e+. In New Leaf, the octopus was switched to the deep-sea creatures category.

Blathers's comment is as follows:

"I think octopus, and I think fried octo-bits, eh wot? That said, I have to say my all-time favorite has to be octo-potpie. Hoo hoo!"

In City Folk

Blathers's comment is as follows:

"Ah, yes, hoo, the octopus. Did you know the blood of the octopus is actually colored blue? With its eight legs and predilection for spewing'd think people would be repulsed by it. And yet, perhaps due to its fetching shape, the octopus remains one of the most loved sea creatures!"

The octopus appears in the back tank, staying in the rock crevice towards the right. If the octopus is placed in a home, it appears in a medium square tank with rocks so it can live in the crevice.

Further information

Octopus rubescens generally grows to a mantle length of 8–10 cm, and arm length of 30–40 cm. Adult weight is generally 100-150 grams, however occasionally animals up to 400 grams in weight have been observed. Like all octopi, O. rubescens can change its color and texture, making its appearance highly variable. Color can vary from a deep brick red, to brown, to white, or mottled mixtures of the three. The octopus from Animal Crossing series is the East Pacific Red Octopus.
