It`s definitely a good idea to keep your distance to this one. Imagine a splash of ink flying through the air and SPLASH!! right onto your new white shirt. What a mess! Or maybe it is flouting around in the water, an ink pound waiting for you to dive right into it. It would certainly be something to see, a person turning all black or blue from ink after a bath.
And if you wonder an inksplash translated correct is an octopus. In Norwegian named by its ability to expulse ink, in English maybe it got it`s name for it`s eight (sometimes ten) arms?
