Get your octopus to eat from your hands and play with you? I have read so many posts and looked up articles where this happens so often. My boyfriend and I have a bimac, his name is Chance. When we first got him on Jan 10 he hid quite a bit but now is out in the front of the tank a lot. Dancing around, looking like he's trying to get out by thrusting at the glass, playing with the toys in the tank. We can now sit and look at him and he doesn't scoot away. We feed him frozen raw shrimp, frozen scallops and some clams. When we go to open the top of the tank, he runs away and eventually (within seconds or minutes) will come out to eat. If anyone has any advice on how to get him to eat from our hands or play with us, please let me know! I'd love to do that! Thanks for reading!
