Next weekend, we're going down for 3 days and stay in the Inner Harbor in Baltimore. Of course tops on our list is going to the Aquarium! I can't remember on our other visits, if they have an octopus. I am soooo looking forward to this! Anyone know??

I thought I had heard somewhere that they do. Seems they have quite an impressive setup over there. Have you seen their homepage at http://www.aqua.org/? Have fun, and let us know how it goes!

Well......The trip was a bust!!!!! Actually the blizzard interfered and from what I can see of Baltimore on the tube, it's a good thing we didn't go!! Probably would have been stranded in the Holiday Inn!!! Not fun!!!!!

Did check out the website! Oh well! Warmer weather will eventually come!!!

i live near dc, in maryland. i havent been to the aquarium since june, but they certainly do have an octo! when i was there, i got to talking to one of the people who worked there. the octopus's name was fonzie, but he was really old. the keeper told me they have a back-up octopus in case fonzie died suddenly :( the aquarium is certainly a really awesome place and i hope you get to go somehwhere!

also, the national zoo in DC has an octopus, and there's free admission there!
