Did they say if they'd tried small juvenile O. dofleini to see if it's a size or a species difference? I also wonder if adults are just big & bad enough to not scare as easily...
Some one raised this exact question as the conclusion of hearing between species wasn't totally scientifically sound as all the octos weren't the same size. They only had one E. dolfleini , and it wasn't very young or small so that was something to note. Hopefully this research will be continued so we'll all know! :biggrin2:

Cheers!
