My nameís Stavros and Iím an international undergraduate student in NY. Iím currently a researcher at a ceph lab in my college. Iím interested in investigating cognition in octopus and cuttlefish. For the octopus research, the lab had four bimacs to work with, however two died (after one year) and the other two do not seem to have much more time either as they stopped eating for a while now.
I am about to start my own research, however this wonít be possible due to the situation described. Therefore, Iím planning on buying with personal expenses 3-4 octopuses (not any specific species in particular) to work with. The problem with this is that I do not have enough money to pay for shipping and I could only get them locally. Can I ask you if you could refer me to any local cephalopod sellers? The animals will be bought strictly for educational/scientific purposes and proper documentation will be provided if needed.
Iíd like to thank you in advance for your time,
