    Cross your fingers--if he's just a little guy he'll probably make it through. Plus, DHL will probably give you a refund.

    Yes, I think this must mean that you have a super octo!
    So glad that he arrived in good shape.

    The poor little guy needs a rest! It's been a long trip. I think you'll see him again!

    Whoo whoo whoo whoo whoo!

    You should still contact DHL to see if you can get a shipping refund. If you had next-day-air service I believe they guarantee it will be there by 10 AM.

    Yay, Zoidberg! May he have a long and happy life now that he's settled down from his itinerant lifestyle!

    where u drip acclimate your specimin so you dont shock it out... also hes a bimaculoides... and for now hes in a 20 and soon to be in a 75 when i move in 2 weeks... i got him from octopets since ive been on the waiting list for so long and so many disasters have occurred jim sent me one of the slightly larger ones that he was saving to breed instead of one of the ones that will be ready mid next month his head is the size of a peanut so quite a bit larger than a 1 month old i think hes about 2.5 months already
