Here's a short little clip of my octo severus. I believe he's a briareus, not really sure if its a male, just liked the name. This is him right when he wakes up, about an hour before i usually feed him. He's super active, but bein lazy here watching a damsel fish. Sorry about the awful lighting and the tv in the background, this was taken with my iphone though. It's too big to attach so i put it up on youtube.

Yes on both briareus and male. The call on sex is slightly tentative and assumes the curled arm is the third on the right (clockwise with eyes aligned with yours).
