    Hi, my name is Karina. I'm from Utah, USA. Last year I became scuba certified, and I'm excited to learn more about marine life (even though I'm from a land-locked desert state). I'm here to absorb your knowledge. Any tips on identification are greatly appreciated. I'm a big fan of cuttlefish and octopuses.

    I keep studying identification traits and have recorded a few clues for common octopuses in the US. I gave a presentation at TONMOcon V and the slides are avilable here: http:\\www.octopusid.com. Click on the word species at the bottom of the intro page. On the left are bullet points about identifying each species shown. Clicking the camera icon will display pictures for the species.

    Welcome! I grew up in Phoenix and still had the Marine Biology itch that hasn't stopped...
