The Witch class in the Advanced Players Guide allows an octopus as a familiar (p 219 in the Bestiary). My player has generated multiple questions regarding this subject.
Will the octopus function on land? Under ecology, the environment says 'temperate or cold ocean' which can be read as '(temperate ocean) or (cold ocean)' or '(temperate) or (cold ocean)'. Note that the octopus is now a magical creature and all that entry states is the creature eats, breathes, and sleeps.
Is there anything preventing the octopus from using Ink Cloud or Jet on land? Logically these are abilities an octopus uses under water, but as written I see no limitation.
The Witch entry says the octopus uses the 'young' template. I cannot seem to find it in the index of the books I possess. Where is the young template for monsters? The young template is in a Bestiary appendix. I missed it on first glance.
Edit: The octopus does possess a land speed of 20ft.
