yea im pretty confident it's briareus. I find it so weird that i live in Florida (where briareus are commomly found) yet i cant find anyone thats currently selling one. haha, thats the pet trade i guess. Just wondering, at what time does he usually come out?

The eyes look like a briareus and it's nocturnal. Does it have deep webbing? and do you ever see an iridescent blue-green color?

Nice octopus!

Nancy, maybe you skimmed over this part of tread's second post:

A more detailed description would be nice, however.

I believe the pictures show iridescent blue-green.

I hope this post doesn't come across poorly; I mean no harm :grin:

Sorry I missed the part about the webbing - I had looked at this thread before and just skimmed over it again.

It's good if we actually hear the description (like the blue green color) from the owner, photos can be deceiving. So far it could be a briareus.

I'm going to have to change what I said in my last post.he comes out all the time day or night.Still doing well,he even eats from my hand.Sometimes I think he is more interested in my hand.

He may well be! :lol: Be careful how much you let him grab you. There's a thread somewhere about octo bites, with some interesting pictures of bites.
