One day I decided out of the clear blue that I wanted to learn more about the octopus. I keep a notebook for random thoughts in my head and I write down anything I want to research online later. So, one day I typed "octopus" into google and a few dozen links later, I found myself here. That was a year ago. I have learned a lot about these amazing animals and have also learned quite a bit about other cephalopods. I do not have one of my own yet, but thanks to this site, if I do ever decide to get one (and at this point I'm quite sure it's only a matter of time) I will know where to begin. It seems that the more you know about them, the more fascinating they are. I'm not one to jump into things, but a year later and I'm still coming back so I'm sure that this is not just a passing fancy but a true interest. In the meantime, it's great to share your stories, see your pics, and share in this great community. It just seemed a good time to delurk.
