Octopus with 96 tentacles
This one has 96 tentacles (or legs). One might argue that technically it's not an "octo" pus (perhaps a "multipus"), but it does in fact have eight primary tentacles which then continue branching in almost a fractal pattern. Some discussion of how this might have happened at the Pharyngula science blog and at Pink Tentacle.
