    Hi there! I'm not sure if I'm in the right thread- but I am looking to acquire an Octopus vulgaris for a marine exhibit. If anyone knows any vendors or can point me in the right direction- that would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    They are very hard to come by. For those of us who have one it seems it was by accident. They have not been around much in the last 10 years.

    @kkaeterle you might PM @Susan Grosskopf and ask where she purchased Bubba. There would be no guarantees of species as the first "vulgaris" was O. briareus from this vendor.
