How long after a female bimac lays eggs will she continue eating?
If anything, the fact that she's still eating will prolong her lifespan by a bit! When they lay eggs in nature they often starve because it's too risky to leave their eggs. I've had other species of octos lay eggs in captivity, continue eating (while guarding the eggs) and as a result, live for longer than expected. I don't want to give any false hope, but just wanted you to know that it's a positive sign for now (although regardless, eggs indicate she's at the end of her life cycle...)

Best of luck to you and mama octo :heart:
Yeah. I know the end is near. I am just amazed she is still eating. Thank you for the information. She has already been my longest lived octopus. She is not far off from the 5 month mark.
