Head Chef Emmanuel Psomas says he was steaming the octopus Thursday when he discovered that it seemed, well, leggier than normal. Psomas says he's cooked octopus for 40 years -- it's a Greek delicacy -- and has never seen one with an extra leg.
He says he counted the legs three times in disbelief.
"I'm like, this can't be," Psomas said. "I've seen a lot of octopus."
He's keeping the octopus in his refrigerator for now, but he 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 likely due to genetic mutation.
