    What kinds of fun and interesting things have you taught your octopus?

    I dont know that they are taught tricks so much as they are just smart enough to figure stuff out for themselves... that octo with the coconuts house trick wasnt taught by anyone. Pretty nifty.

    I played fetch and hide - n - seek with Legs my pet Briareus. Nancy had one that would pull her magna-float off the tank when it wanted attention or food i forgot which. Others have tried the food inside a jar trick, My octo never did very well with this one. They are very smart, Not quite the Cat like intelligence that some people report but pretty clever none the less.
