    I'm not sure if this is right, but I would like to have a sample of a real octopus for my oceanography club. Do they sell them whole preserved in jars? Is there a place that I can safely buy one? I don't want to buy something that was illegally caught or something similar in nature.

    thanks in advance,

    Carolina is definitely the way to go! Their speciemens are well presented (OK so we only have the fish ones but they're good! & I assume the ceph ones will be too!!)
