hello to all...
i joined because i am quite intrigued by octopi ever since i seen an episode on the learning channel about the intelligence of this creature. one was kept in a lab in a plexiglass tank (with no lid) and across the room in another plexiglass tank were crabs. well every morning when the workers went in all the crabs were missing. so someone kept watch and found out the octopus was climbing out of its tank and slithered across the floor to the tank were the crabs were kept and climbed up, ate them, then slithered back down and went back into its own tank again. there were many other tanks in this room, but the octopus remebered where its tank was and where the crab tank was (even from the ground, it knew where the crab tank was located). so ever since then ive been trying to find out as much info i can on them and to learn all about them. maybe some day i will own one myself. for now, i will enjoy them from a far. :)

Me too (stick around that is). We'll post away online and let you know how things are developing/progressing (or not). Things are presently, certainly going to heat up.

Now there's an interesting suggestion; probably no need for a separate forum though - we'll just post away as we have in Physiology & Biology, or if things get way out of hand, in Culture and Entertainment.

...where you will be greeted by a wiry bouncer with a long memory and no tolerance for Andy Williams.

Welcome to TONMO, Spoony.
