Here's one that I found just while walking along the beach a few weeks ago in Tahiti. Cute little guy. Very easy to catch in ankle deep water. He seemed convinced that he could just hide by changing his colour to match the sand and didn't try to get away when I gently picked him up.

He was returned unharmed, of course.

If you gonna catch it yourself make sure its not a blue ring octopus. Its poison kill and there is NOT antidote for blue ring octupus poison.

A spread out fully grown blue ring octopus is about size of a dinner plate.

Careful.....

I'm enough of a James Bond fan to recognize a Blue Ring...still I was pretty cautious.

If you are gonna' go...death by Blue Ring octopus is at least unique!

LOL Jamal you have your eye on the one in the fish room at TFP...he does look like he'd be cool to keep. I've read that they are awesome escape artists, you practically need a totally enclose tank or you come home to find the octopus attached to your dog or cat's head.
