    It's been about 2 weeks now since Egors' eggs were discovered. Unfortunately she has herself postioned so it's just about impossible to get any pics. She still has her eye to the front of the cave watching us but has shopped eating. I can't tell when I shine a light in if they are fertile or not but they are the size of a rice grain which I'm thinking were bigger than Inks eggs. Few more weeks and I should hopefully see something! I went to Pa last weekend, hoping maybe they'd have an octopus, but the only thing they were getting in was a blue ring that was special order for someone. I don't know why these shops even order them in for people. Anyway, Jess and I are possible heading to Baltimore tomorrow so hopefully will have some pics of their GPO!

    Sounds great Carol. Good luck with the eggs. It would be neat to see a GPO. :smile: GPO is giant pacific octopus and they are big right?
