ok I had a friend come over and take these awesome pics of Jetta
Cool...did the octo turn red during the shot? Nice pic!
That is a fine-looking mollusc, and a rather cool picture.
She stays pretty much red all the time except at night when she turns a beautiful blue 8)
I notice that Jetta looks quite comfortable in her new home!
Nice pics...I'd like to see more when she's blue green, but that must be difficult to photograph.
yes, very pretty girl!!!
Very nice pics. :)
Nice Pix. :)
ok here are some more :D
Nice pictures! Jetta looks huge!!! Good luck with her!!!
have you had any contact physically with the jetta yet???
Shes a good hider!
Wow Jetta is so pretty, by the way, how big is she? She looks qute large, Could ya get a picture of her at night? I would like to see them
Collin, yes i hand fed her but the trust level is just not there. She rarely comes out of the "den" and when i dismantled it to get these pics she got REALLY MAD. Since these were taken she has rebuilt it and now all i can see is a tent. or two. she has become reculsive :? She does take the pcs of scallop i give her, what she does with them, i dont know
Joel and Nancy, I have tried so hard to get pics of her at night but they really dont come out :? I have to have a flashlight on her and take the pics without the flash, its jsut hard to get her to cooperate
Here is a pic of her with a beer bottle in front of the tank for size :P
just remeber that she is much more nocturnal than a bimac so the hiding is totally normal. also she is adult and harder to aclimatise to you.
taking her den to bits probably doesnt help :?
Nice shot!! Looks like she was after the Bud
yeah I know taking her den apart wasnt a good thing :( ( i had to get those shots ) but its been rebuilt and now she is shedding :o or i think she is, It looks like the skin off her tenticles are always floating around the tank. Is this normal? Also she is eating a full bay scallop every other day :) She also seems to still be inverted in the den. When she rebuilt the den she inclosed it :? and all i can see now is just a small opening on one side and her tenticles are always upside down. She is very active in there, always moving around. I dont know what she is doing but she seems happy.
Shedding the tentacles' covers is an almost everyday occurance, i forgot how messy briareus were with it :)
Ahhh, man she sheds alot!!!! she is still eating and i saw her last night out of the den sorta :? She came half way out and was exploring the LR and the Big Strawberry pot that is next to her den, but as soon as the flashlight came on back she went into the den :? Oh well having such a big girl has been such a treat. I just hope she is gravid and maybe babies soon. 8)
