Hi,
I have heard that they bite, but do they bite without being aggrevated? And how hard do they bite? I saw the record of someone being bitten on an aircraft, but that's quite understandable on the octopus' part! :lol: I love the range of their colours and textures, but it would be nice to have a good 'relationship' with the octopus. Do they enjoy interacting with humans?
Thanks :)

I have always thought Roy's airplane story should have been part of the parody of the same name. Unfortunatey, we don't have any current records of one being kept outside of the few that Roy and MarineBio_Guy have mentioned in the labs for their research.
