Shame they didnt consider incubation may take a considerably long time with a large octo, but hey cool if they hatch and there's a swarm of little monsters!!! :D :D

I know several places that have had GPO's lay infertal eggs, it's good that some one has been able to get fertile ones. But believe me it is a nightmare trying to raise them when they first hatch.

Aurora, believed to be 3 or 4, was about the size of a grapefruit when she was found in 2002 living inside an old tire in front of the SeaLife Center.
I have this image of a Dickensian orphan being left on the steps of the workhouse in a basket lined with straw... :heee:

They're probably up for a 90-day planktonic larval stage, so they'll have to keep them free-swimming that long, cylindrical tanks, with tons of live food.
