The unique sea creature, which has two limbs fewer than a normal octopus, is believed to be the result of a birth defect rather than an accident, say his keepers at the Blackpool Sea Life Centre in northwest England.
"We've scoured the internet and talked to lots of other aquariums and no one has ever heard of another case of a six-legged octopus," supervisor Carey Duckhouse said.
It was only when he attached himself to the inside of a glass tank that Sea Life staff noticed he was two limbs short of a full set.
