so i got the new octo from the store on tuesday and he's doing quite well. I acclimated him while my mom, teacher, and 3 kids were around and my teacher was doing a crossword puzzle with a student on eye anatomy. suddenly she exclaimed "oh! its schlemm!!" and we all stopped and looked at her and then burst out laughing, so we had to name the octo schlemm in honor of the moment. Schlemm is awesome, the new center of attention in class. he spends most of his time watching the class, his little eye stalks peering out from his hole. on wednesday we had state-wide testing so those not testing could come in late and be excused so of course i went and bought some food for schlemm. i put a snail down next to his hole and he calmly reached out and curled an arm around the snail and dragged it into the hole. it was the coolest thing! it made my week, i think. he blends in really well too, so half the time no one can find him! on friday i couldnt find himn and then my teacher just said "hes on the right" in such a nonchalant manner. i think he may be a bimac but im not sure. he is pale greenishblue when not blending in with the rocks and his eyes are raised on short stalks. he doesnt have as many suckers on his arms as othello's but they are more varied in size. i'll try to get a good pic tmw. also, sometimes he will bob his head/eyes at me, in a manner very similar to the anoles outside, but only once or twice at a time. is this normal? what could it mean?
