well, if there are more than one they are called- octupi and I think they are omnivores. Which means they eat meat and vegetation. I'm pretty sure. They might eat a pear if you gave them one. who knows??

Hmm, I like the pear limbless, but it might be cool to adds some arms and legs (anybody remember that Blur music video with the walking milk box??)  Personally, I would add just legs.  No arms.

As for a name for Mr. Pear, how about Bartlett or Bosco?  Both are varieties of pear (technically Bartlett and Bosc).  I like Bosco.
