    One of my company's distributors also offers the "red ring." Don't take anything the distributor says seriously: they rarely know--nor care--about what type of octopus they're selling!

    Googling for Octopus brenice, came accross the Takonos-Jar site, I love this person! All your Ika are belong to us!

    The octopus and cuttlefish kind is the one which both the form and the living form differ from
    the animal at the other underseaness in completely.
    The abdomen doesn't have the eight or 10 legs.It is in front of the head.
    This leg is suitable to call an arm because it catches a bait,
    it holds a companion in case of copulation and can have a thing, too.
    Also, their eyes are very developed.
    The cuttlefish swims the earliness which is the same as the fish and the octopus
    which crawls on the bottom of the sea is a powerful preying person.

    They have a form with non- touch and are greedy.
    However, by observing the act in detail, we will be to have strange devotion to them.

    We got one in once at work that one of my coworkers was telling me was a red ring. If I remember right it was collected from Indonesia, and it looked like A. Aculeatus to me. Unfortunately, it inked in the bag and was in very poor shape. It died the next day :(.

    Never heard of a red ring, but if the rings were iridescent like blue-rings then it would sure look cool. wonder if they might be poisonous too?

    May cephalopods be bestowed eternal glory!
