Hello. I am new to cephs and looking for a good species. I was attracted to the coconut because of the potential lifespan of 3-5 years (which I have no idea translates into captivity) and their seemingly higher intelligence (tool use). If anybody has any information on them, please let me know.

I have never seen this species offered for sale. It’s interesting to read about, but you will most likely never be able to keep one. However, the octopuses that are offered for sale are interesting, too.
