Has anyone ever heard of enrichment programs for Giant Pacific Octopus? Something similar to the programs that zoos sometimes do with great apes where the apes can, when they are so inclined, enter a room and work at a computer. I am looking for something unique that would give an octopus on public display an enriching activity or environment that would also be exciting for guests to watch or interact with. I don't want to settle for the traditional, "Let toss a Mr. Potatohead into the tank." Has anyone seen an exhibit that allows the octopus to leave its tank for another? Thoughts? ideas?
