Mr. Octopus' first birthday was this Sunday, August 5th. So far he's summered surprisingly well, seemingly unfazed by the heat (knock on wood!), still eating a fiddler crab every night and spraying me with water whenever I try to give him one.
Zyan mentioned Mr. O's hatching date in another thead. He was over six months old when
he arrived, so I don't think we can expect him to be around to celebrate his anniversary. Given the recent temperatures I'm very surprised he's still alive today!
