    Hello All
    I am a wildlife documentary producer and am currently looking for someone with a pet octopus in the UK (preferably O. Vulgaris) to film with a cephalopod scientist for a taster tape for an idea that several broadcasters are interested in. The documentary idea will reveal how octopuses aren't just intelligent but also have personalities.
    Any help with this would be fantastic.
    Many thanks to all.

    Thanks for posting! Hopefully you'll get some responses soon; I'll try to put the word out as well (e.g., to our followers on Facebook). Good luck and please keep us posted.

    Hi gabyb and welcome to our site!

    We've had a number of members from the UK keeping octopuses, and hopefully someone will see your request and respond. Only a few have kept O. vulgaris, but smaller octopuses have prtsonalities, too!
    You might find out where octopuses are being kept in marine biology labs - maybe someone there would be interested in participating.

    Nancy
