Well, interesting. It does not help the hobbiest age an octo but it was intresting to find there was still a vestige of a shell since I thought it was established otherwise.

Researchers have been using this method for aging octopus for over 10 years. It's bases on the method for aging squid by their statolith. But not all octopus species have the vestigial shell.

That makes more sense (that some do and some don't) from other things that I have read. So now I don't know why this is news at all.
