I stumbled across this site after browsing for giant squid in Google..

I think I'm starting to make family members nervous, when you start ' ranting ' about Octopi & cephalopods..

I don't think I'd make a good octo, ceph' owner, they'd be spoilt, like my cats..

Within a week, they'd have..

' Leg warmers '
A bobble hat of some sort..

Bow tie..

:heee:

I can't get enough tbh, very nice, fascinating.

Sorry, forgot to ask, what is the species featured in the middle top banner on the front page?, superb colouring and grain.

Hello Vid Octo,

That little scaper is Ollie, the O. bimaculoides belonging to TONMO staff member Nancy. To see the stats on Ollie and his environment, click here.

Enjoy the site. Go easy with the leg warmers.

Hi Vid_Octo,

Welcome to TONMO.com!

Thanks for asking about the Ollie photo - I've taken a lot of pics of her, since she's so photogenic. Ollie's always been such a beautiful octopus and a lot of fun.

Nancy
