I was perusing ebay this evening and came across this super tiny "zebra octopus" for sale. I am not an octopus keeper but I sure hope this guy goes to a good home. He is so tiny and cool! (and expensive)

The link and pics may not work once the listing ends. Oh and it is NOT my listing.

BTW I do lots of reading on this forum but usually have nothing to post. ;)
