octopus

Here is my best explanation:

'sea creature' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'work after month' is the wordplay.
'work' becomes 'opus' (I've seen this before).
'after' means one lot of letters go next to another.
'month' becomes 'oct' (Oct is an example).
'opus' put after 'oct' is 'OCTOPUS'.

'to find' is the link.
