Wow, that was bittersweet, but if they do have baby octopuses--how wonderful!

I hope J-1 didn't mind that everyone saw spermatophores hanging from his siphon. I suppose after 5 years in a tank with no female octopuses, you just don't care anymore, though. 8O

In an unrelated story, Officials claim that 32 shipments of Viagra disappeared off the back of a freight truck near the vicinity of the Aquarium.


Authorities Baffled.

Oh good lord!

Hey if my fate was to starve to death after bearing kids, I'd wait as long as possible too! Why can't they kill the male afterwards like any "normal" Arthropod.

Didn't need the mental pictures either : P

don't they usually fix an octopuss when they put it in an aquarium because they always die after mating, that way they live longer then say a year?
