Everywhere I go I seem to hear a different story about someone's octopus that got out in the middle of the night, crawled into a different tank (next to it, across the room, sometime it's even in another room), and then went back to its own tank after eating. Almost invariably these stories end with someone setting up a camera and catching the octopus in the act. I've been hearing these stories for over 15 years, back when no one had the ability to leave a camera system running on record all night without getting up to change tapes. Has anyone actually confirmed this observation? Has anyone actually seen any of this on video from a reputable (i.e. not staged) source? Did this ever happen to anyone here in this forum? Just trying to track down the original observation(s) that sparked this urban legend.
