There is at least one species of octupus that lives in freshwater. The Zizania persalsa was dicovered in Brazil.
Is anyone here familar with freshwater octouses? Where are they sold?

The only reference I could find on this species was in an article posted on April 1st (April fool's day?) -- can you provide more info? I don't think there are any validated freshwater species... there may have been an incident at a river mouth near the ocean, if I recall...
