Thought you all might like to see this photo of Ollie, who's playing with my home-made cleaning stick. He's hanging on and won't let go and seems to thoroughly enjoy doing this.

When I tried to distract him with a small fiddler crab, he captured the crab without letting go of the wooden stick and held onto it, waiting until he had time to eat it. You can see the small crab against the upper part of the stick.

Amazing photo -- is Ollie just showing off some Bimac coloration, or is he doing an impression of a Mimic Octo doing an impression of "Ol' Blue Eyes"?
