    Did anybody try to keep this species as a pet?
    Does anybody know whether this is a nocturnal or diurnal species?

    Thanks for your help

    Please don't click the following articel, if you dont like to hear of octopuses being eaten.

    Quite a few of the Tonmo regulars eat octopus...we used to have recipes somewhere.

    I can't stand the flavour, myself...fish tasting bubble gum. Yecch.

    Unfortunately, I have no experience with that species...anyone?

    I was thinking it would be nice to save one from a restraunt that serves them live. Just get it "to go" in a bag of water... hehe.

    I suppose a lot of what you eat depends upon what you were served as a young person. I am an animal lover but enjoy steak and pork. I love the ocean and all its critters but lobster is my favorite food and oysters on the half shell my second favorite. Shrimp, crab and calamarie come in somewhere near the top as well. It is easier to justify this position when you consider that feeding your critters requires providing similar food.
