Investigating Oklahoma’s “Octopus”

Posted by: Nick Redfern on January 23rd, 2015


“Just a few days ago, while doing a late night radio show, I was asked a question that seldom comes my way. It went something like this: ‘Is there anything you haven’t investigated and written a book on, but that you would like to?’ Well, there are lots of things which fall into that category, not surprisingly! One of the things that really stands out for me, however, is the weird saga of what has become known as ‘The Oklahoma Octopus.’

“It’s a deeply strange story that is very much dominated by myth, folklore, and urban legend, but which just might have at its heart a genuine mystery of cryptozoological proportions. It’s also a saga on which I have a lot of data, leads, sources, and information, all of which need filtering and investigating in-depth – and all of which, incidentally, I am doing right now for a book project.”

That’s how my new Mysterious Universe article kicks off…

    This appears remarkably similar to this post back in August 2013.

    This has always been one of those cryptids that I just can’t wrap my head around, but at the same time it gets my curiosity–probably the same as you, Nick.

    At first glance, it’s preposterous, impossible and just HAS to be nonsense for all the above mentioned reasons. On the other hand, what the heck are people seeing and what were the tribes referring to? Is there some sort of weed or algae that grows in strands that people are seeing? Something else? Only digging may bring light (of course, if Cthulhu is involved, I’m out. I am not messing with that. 🙂

    On the other hand, I’m more than willing to read on the subject…
