Juvenile Abdopus aculeatus

This is one of the smallest A. aculeatus I have ever kept. Mantle length is less than a centimeter. Still, many of the adult behaviors are present including brown stripe and hermit crab mimicry. The animal is eating up a storm and hopefully will be around for a long time. Fortunately, it is day active and not at all camera shy. Roy

Octopus Suck

Some people like to have a video of a fire log burning as animated art. For me, writhing arms with suckers flared does the same thing. For now, this static image of the arms of an Abdopus female will have to do.

Hapalochlaena lunulata up close

Most photos of blue-ringed octopus show dramatic coloration usually because the animal is excited. This female H. lunulata is setting in the entrance of her cavity in a much more relaxed state, but still the blue rings are clearly visible. For scale, the distance between her eyes is about 1.2 cm. The lobes below the eye and the blue eye line running through the eye are characteristic of this species.
