    I was just looking around Youtube for things about octos and came across this. I looked all over Tonmo to see if anyone had posted about and did not find anything. This is amazing and if there calculations are right this octo might live for 12 years. Just the fact that the female broads her eggs for 52 months is incredible. Check it out

    Thanks! It was in our News, Cephalopod by Species and Facebook pages but those are often overlooked. I will add the video to the species post.

    I also have to say on a more geekish note, SO CUTE!

    There, I'm done. *returns to scholarly mode*
