Hmmm, sounds like an Al-Qaeda recruit out to undermine our
aquarium infrastructure. Better ship it off to Guantánamo Bay
and put it in a "holding tank".

Looks like animals don't like to be caged for our enjoyment. Animal slaves revolt against your human masters!

I know this is serious because of all the clean up, but it just sounds SO funny.

The aquarium people ought to consider putting a safe in the bottom of their tank and see how long it takes the octopus to open it.

Actually, not a bad idea to release her to her natural environment instead of locking her in some kind of tank; then they can name her "Free."

Yeah thats right give her a huge hunk of steel to throw through the glass that way if she wants to go out and play it will take less time to get out

It would be great if we did not need zoos and aquariums. Unfortunately, as we continue to destroy our environment, species disappear at ever-increasing rates. Some species can now only be found in zoos or aquariums.
