The Nature Conservancy gave me a hot tip to go look at this video.

It seems that the Seattle Aquarium was having some trouble keeping sharks in one of their exhibits...

And it is the new guy on the aquarium staff who has to tell the octopus it has to move to new quarters!

You know I have spent many years at sea and I am only 5' 6". Seeing as how it can devour a shark anywhere from 3 to 4 feet, I doubt that one and a half feet more, would not mean anything more to one of those things than a super sized meal. Want fries with that? Shocked Quite an interesting video clip, would liked to have seen the whole program, to see what else they featured. Thanks Rik. Very Happy
