O. rubescens seems to be holding eggs. She has holed up inside an opaque half gallon jar. She has not been out during the day since late November. The jar has been stacked with all sorts of shells, algae et cetera. I pulled some of it away just to see if she was still alive in there. I did not realize that an octopus can glare. If looks could kill. What can I expect next? If she has eggs ( I could not see any but I could not see much) how long will they gestate? Suggestions? Wisdom?
