Quite possibly the cutest member of the cephalopod family, Tako is a sweet and mellow little squid. He’s so mellow, in fact, that he doesn’t mind that his name is used to describe both octopus and squid in Hawaiian.

Hawaiian bobtail squid are gorgeous, iridescent little creatures that would fit in the palm of your hand. Tako is quite a bit bigger than the real thing, but he’s just the right size for snuggling.
