    I'm not sure where this should be posted, but the UC Museum of Paleontology and NEScent have just completed a web story that describes Mucktopus's (Dr. Christine Huffard's) research on mating behavior in Abdopus aculeatus. We hope you like it. Be sure to watch the video insert that contains some of Crissy's great video with me droning on in the background. (I will take credit for a few still images.) Enjoy!

    Very nice video. I enjoyed it quite a bit. I must say I was quite tickled that they used one of my photos of O. rubescens in the opening splash with various octopuses.
