I thought I’d already put this here, but I cannot find it anywhere on here. But thanks to a renewed interest in tentacles I’ve taken it out of my actual drawing book and contemplated it. Tentative, tentacles, a common etymology: to feel, to try, to test, especially. What in my environment is safe, and what is not? What shall I gather as sustenance? Now for some facts extracted from the internet. Caecilians are amphibians without any limbs, but they do have tentacles, which are sensory organs so perhaps limb-adjacent. There is this giant mythological earthwormlike creature, the minhocão, that ALLEGEDLY exists in the forests of central South America, and it looks like these little serpentlike creatures. Only amplified and perhaps like something out of Dune. Perhaps that’s its shadow at the bottom.
