Jacques Cousteau in the PNW

If you are of a certain age, you have seen a lot of Jacques Cousteau’s work. I’m guessing that kids growing up today are not familiar. There are so many other options available in our modern world. But most of that Cousteau stuff still holds up.

Including the award winning documentary series The Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau, which visited Seattle to document the Giant Pacific Octopus. It is notable for a tentacle span that can reach 20 feet. The record for the the largest live Giant Pacific Octopus recorded is 156 pounds!

If you would like to see what Jacques was up to, and get a look at that 1972 Seattle skyline, the episode is currently on youtube.

I have not taken a photo of a Giant Pacific Octopus, but I did take this shot of a baby snow leopard, which is adorable. 🙂
