Hi, everybody! I love octopuses, but I don't think that I'm going to be up to owning one until I'm retired (a long time away, given that I'm 17 :octopus2:—she looks amused to me). Anyway, I was wondering if anyone knew of any public aquaria with octopuses in or around Minnesota, or if anyone knew of a better place where I could find out?

Hi,

You can go to www.aza.org and click on "AZA zoos and aquariums" on the left of the page; it will take you to a search that you can do by state. It won't tell you if any of those institutions have octos, but it will give you their webpages and contact info so you can find out.

Hope that helps!
