Hello everyone, my name is Lívia, I'm 16 years old and I am from Brazil. 2013 is my last year of highschool and I want to go law school. I like ballet (and I take classes, 5h per week), photography and reading. I'm sorry if I misspell some words and I hope to be part of this community.

I've recently found out how much I'd love to have an octopus, so I was researching about it and I found this wonderful forum! I love those exotic sea animals, such as jellyfishes, octpuses and rays. I am a beginner, really, I've never had pets at home because my parents hate taking care of animals. But they would let me have an octopus, so here I am (:

:welcome: Hi Livia! I think it's great that you are interested in octopuses and are researching it before you get one! There is a lot of great information here that can help you figure out if keeping an octopus is something you really want to do. Good luck! :smile:

Thank you! I'm reserching because I believe it's very important, I mean, octopuses are alive and they need care and love right. I'm sure I want one, and I have time to get it anyway so I really think that the information here will be very helpful (:

:welcome: Livia,

Where will you obtain an octopus? Do you live near the ocean? Oh, just saw that you are from São Paulo, so not too far from the ocean.
Thank you. My friend told me to go to a pet shop where they work with sea water so they can get me an octopus (since they have fishes from the sea already). It's not that near to the ocean, but I have a beach house anyway so it's ok.
