    I am looking to interview octopus enthusiasts for a radio segment in NYC. Do you have a pet octopus? Know anyone who has a pet octopus in or around NYC? I would be very interested in speaking with you.

    Hello,

    Welcome to TONMO. I think there are at least a few ceph keepers in the NYC area, and certainly plenty of enthusiasts (like me). Off to search the banks. In the meantime, perhaps someone will pipe up.

    Cheers,

    Clem

    :lol:

    Much the same could be said of Western Connecticut. Carol, this looks like a job for you.

    TONMO member Manny is, I believe, a New Yorker, and his octo experienced a traumatic ride through his tank's sump. This was back in February of 2003. Click here to view that thread. Manny, are you still with us?
