:bugout: :bugout: :roll: Hello! I was wondering if anybody has ever taken care of an argonaut octopus as a pet. If so, where can I buy one? I heard that they live pretty longer than other cephalopods.

Hello Flipflop,

I've never heard of anyone keeping one or of an argonaut for sale anywhere. They aren't common.

I think the NRCC only managed to keep one going for a few days

I suspect that you would have the same problems with an argonnaut as you would with squid. These are pelagic octopus and need HEAPS of room!

Cheers
