    I moved this news story to Octopus Care forum since I imagine some octo owners / prospects may benefit from the point of view of this article, which speaks to the importance of keeping an octopus "mentally stimulated".

    (I believe Shania's story was posted once or twice before)

    Thanks, Tony. It's fun to read about how octopuses play.

    This article should provide our octo keepers with more ideas about what might interest their octopuses.
