Xeno-Poda

“Xeno-Poda”
5×7 inches, watercolor and ink

This bottle contains a bizarre creature that at first glance resembles a cephalopod, but on closer inspection its tentacles lack any of the familiar suction cups and present I wildly different sizes.

A rare sight, these creatures can be brought up from their homes in the depths by a combination of seasonal currents and undersea geological events.
