    HI all, this is the latest edition of the List of our Octopuses, and I know some recent octos are missing.
    If you notice that your octopus is not on this list, please PM me with the information.
    Thanks,
    Nancy

    -Hi all,
    This List is ordered by date, latest additions first, for octopuses acquired from January, 2008 to the present. There are other Lists for earlier dates. Note that the starting dates are the dates the octopus was acquired, not the date it hatched.

    Information:
    Octo name - keeper (species) date acquired - date of death / source / keeper's location

    If you notice that your octopus is missing from this list, please PM me with the
    information and I'll add your occy!

    Hi all,

    This is the updated List of Our Octopuses. It has to be kept in parts, in separate posts each covering a couple of years.

    Please make sure your octopus is included. If there are any addiitons or corrections, please post them here. After a week or so, and when I've made the changes, I'll "stick" this thread so it will appear at the top of the forum.

    Thanks for you help!
    Nancy
