actually they are just neoprene gloves that come up to my elbows. im highly allergic to shellfish (go figure...) so i wear them anytime im handfeeding the octo. that way if for some reason it decides to bite ill be ok and wont have to go to the emergency room. theres no telling what would happen if i were injected with venom from a shellfish:goofysca:

I stuck this thread because I wanted these great pictures to be available from the homepage. I'll unstick it after it "ages off" the recent announcements list at the bottom of our homepage. Thanks for posting!

Joe, this little ballet is one of the most beautiful videos I have ever seen online! It quite literally brought tears to my eyes.

Tony, per favore, do not erase this video gem from TONMO.com, even when it "ages out". I for one would like to have continued access to it.

Speaking of which: Joe, would it be possible -- or legal -- for me to download the video and forward it to some of my friends, giving credit to you, of course? And if it's OK with Tony, you might also wish to consider posting the video on YouTube:

YouTube Homepage

BTW, I also loved the second of the three pix.... makes the li'l guy look like a graceful flower (which, in a sense, he certainly is :smile:)

God bless you, Joe, and your "tiny dancer". Hope to see more images of him on TONMO.com!

Your benthic buddy,
Tani
