    I am not usually one to toot my own horn, but I thought I would share this with with a community that might appreciate it.
    Walla Walla University recently featured my research in an article. This article, from what I gather, is largely for recruiting, alumni, etc, and as such isn't super technical. So, somewhat sheepishly :oops:, here it is:

    This sounds really cool - are you going to publish your findings? I for one would be really interested to read about what you discovered.

    Enjoyed reading the article!

    Have you ever been bitten by O. rubescens? They are supposed to bite more than other octopuses, but you seem to be touching one.

    Absolutely, my plan is to publish my findings. There is some interesting and somewhat perplexing stuff going on with dietary lipids with O. rubescens.
    Nancy, I have actually never been bit. I have handled them a reasonable amount, but have avoided their beak like the plague. They seem to be pretty aggressive at times trying to pull my hand/fingers towards their mouth. Especially when I have to fast them before testing. Anyhow, my major prof has been bit long before I was a student here, but had no ill effects.
