Thanks everyone!

Spring - I had Lil P for 5 months. I didn't realize he wasn't right until Inklet arrived and that's when I noticed the growth was just not there, especially with how fast Inklet has been growing. He may have been a sibling according to Octopets, as he was selling to Fish Supply.

I quess octos are like any other creature where there can be problems with growth. I still think it could have been a defect of some sort.

With animals that produce large numbers of offspring they are not all expected to survive and in the wild a lot of them become food for others... think about tadpoles... several thousand bullfrog tadpoles may hatch but very few manage to make it to metamorphosis... Some are not just as fit as others.

So, LilP had a good life and in the wild maybe wouldnt have lived as long... we can be happy about that :)

may your next octo be a monster!!! :)

Aw Carol I'm very sorry to hear about lil pumpkin. I had no idea how small he was, I guess it was a fitting name. Thanks for being such a good octo-mom. :wink:
I'm sure little lil p had a much better life than he would have had without you.
