London, April 3 (ANI): A nine-legged octopus is said to have recently been found in a seafood shipment to Florida.
The head chef of Hellas Bakery and Restaurant in Florida, Emmanuel Psomas, made the discovery while he was steaming the octopus, which is a Greek delicacy.
Psomas, who has cooked octopus for 40 years, said he had never before seen one with an extra leg and counted them three times in disbelief.
"I'm like, this can't be. I've seen a lot of octopus," the Daily Express quoted him as saying.
He is keeping the octopus in his refrigerator for now, but plans to enjoy it soon with a bit of vinegar, lemon juice, olive oil and herbs.
While unusual, marine experts say the extra leg on the octopus is probably due to genetic mutation. (ANI)
