I'm really interested in the amazing escapes of octopuses. Either from a tank, an aquarium or even an fishing net. I once hear that an octopus didn't like the treatment of the aquarium keeper so decided to escape. The octopus devised a plan and waiting for the chance. The chance came when the keeper opened the tank to do the daily feeding. As soon as the lid was opened the octopus grabbed the keeper around the neck, slammed his face onto a sea urchin and jumped out of the tank. As the keeper was stunned for a while, the octopus turned the door knob and proceeded to escape down the hallway. That's as much of the story I know and whether the smart little bugger managed to escape or not I have no idea. If anyone knows of this story and how it ended it, please teach all. If others out there have heard of or witnessed any great octopus escapes or attempts to do so, I would love to hear and I'm sure they would all would enjoy reading about them. As anyone who has read my "introduce yourself" posting, I'm writing a novel about an octopus adventure. Some where in the novel I need great escape plot, so if get some ideas from you guys, from your escape stories, I'll be sure to mention your name in the book.
