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.

:welcome: to TONMO cristalshandalear. I don't have any particularly good stories, other than my simpson eating octo (which is still quite dull), but I would recomend looking at Rockthis11's, corw314's, Nancy's, and pretty much everyone elses posts. If you do decide to get an octo, here's a good link for info on them....

"Welcome" CSL! But I guess you've been here for quite a while... :)

Yep, a year ago TONMO.com probably was a few dozen links down on Google... search for "octopus" today and we're sixth! :party:

Nick provides a good link there... Of course try this one, too (but you've probably already seen it):

Glad you like the site, and very glad you're here! :)
