Octopus mischief



A hen (= female octopus ;)) at the Santa Monica Pier Aquarium opened a valve which then flooded offices with hundreds of gallons of sea water.

Story here.

Yes, an octopus can be a pet.:D

No name is mentioned for this octopus. Would you care to suggest one?

"Octopus gets in a twist over shrimp" (Feb. 24, 2003)
An excerpt:
"An octopus in a German zoo has learned to open jars of shrimp by watching zoo attendants perform the act underwater. Frida, a five-month-old female octopus [from Morocco], opens the jars by pressing her body on the lid and grasping the sides with the suckers on her eight tentacles. With a succession of body twists she unscrews the lid."
