    Giovanni,

    You live in a country with a rich octopus fauna on both coasts. There is also great tradition in cephalopod biology in Panama with researchers like Martin Moynahan and Arcadio Rodaniche. Welcome.

    Roy

    The logistics of trying to transport any live animal between countries might be more problem than is reasonable. I know that Neogonodactylus has transported them and might have some idea what is needed but his collection is for research and not personal use.

    If you're going to be in Florida you might also try to go to Sarasota. It's not far from Orlando, and there's a nice aquarium there. Are you currently a student?

    i'll try to go there, thanks, as for your question, yes I'm on vacation right now till march.....so i still have a lot of time left to enjoy, lol....but I'm about to start my second year of biology...
    pity that it's so hard to transport animals between countries, i kind of knew it already, well anyways, i'll have to pay to some fisherman around to get my own then, hahaha

    Fishermen can be a good way to acquire one but be sure they understand that you want it for a pet and not for dinner.
