    There is only one octopus in that video, I think what you saw may be the empty shell from last years previous tennants dinner.

    I studied that for quite sometime before I decided it was not another octo (especially since it was not breathing and surely you would have said something if there was a dead octo in the den) so I am glad to get the conformation. It speaks well of the eye camo that you would think would be a problem.
