Baby Kraken has now trained me to feed her when she goes to her bottle. It doesn’t matter what bottle is in the tank, or where it is- she sits on it and I go get her some food. It doesn’t seem to matter if it’s raw golf shrimp defrosted from the freezer or live hermit crabs it’s just all about the food!!! 🤣

I got a little behind on my journal entries, but I separated these into a separate journal from above because they illustrate the amount of arm regeneration baby Kraken has experienced since she got here. At first I couldn’t get a shot of regrowth because it was so very tiny. Soon, it will be difficult to tell that any part of that arm isn’t “original!”

Sometimes we get a little silly at my house. This was one of those times… 🤣. In truth, I have found over the years that frequently my octopus is like to watch the dogs running around in the living room. This was the first time we bother to find out what the Octopus thinks about the dog face-to-face. 😂

😂. this is too funny. there aren't many animals that i can think of offhand other than a dog or some cats who train their humans to food reward them, basically for being adorable 💕 she looks so cute hanging out on her bottle waiting for her pretty nice but occasionally slow human to get the message. watch it though - if she starts tapping
the tip of an arm, like a finger, and giving you the "you just ate my boyfriend look ( she's much too young for a boyfriend !! ) , well you know she'way too smart for your own good. try to get it on video if it happens!?!? 🤗

I don’t really have anything new to report on Baby Kraken, everything is status quo- that’s a good thing! She continues to eat, play and grow as she should be. She’s comfortable with stick feeding raw shrimp and crab as well as free feeding on blue legged hermits. She lets me know when she’s hungry by sitting in her jar when I’m in the room- and it works! She goes in the jar, I get the shrimp- she has me trained well. She still hunts for pods, too- which is funny to watch as she grows so much larger than them.

glad to hear all is well with the little Princess. i'd truly love to see video of BabyK seing you in the room and going to sit in her jar, safe in the knowledge that her easily trained human will be forthcoming with the goods. plus, i just miss seeing how Her Adorableness is doing 🤗. just the idea of her sitting in her jar, waiting, zen-like for you to notice cracks me up no end. wouldn't you just love to know what is going through her minds at times like this?

Photo shoot! Every time I try to start tank cleaning she wasn’t to play! My tank looks so dirty in my pics, but we’re having so much fun! BK is growing and groovin’!

Wow- I’m really behind in my journal! It’s “kind of” a good thing, because it means my life actually got busy for a while there! 🤣 All is going great with BK, she’s grown- but I need to get some more up to date pictures, these are a month old already!
