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.

A very Happy Birthday to Mr. Octopus! He looks like he knows how to celebrate! :birthday:

That means that all of Zyan Silver's octopuses are having a birthday - how many are still with us?
Happy Birthday to you all!

Nancy

...not often we get to celebrate octopus birthdays, so :birthday: Mr. Octopus!

Definitely excellent photos. Not sure there was ever a photo of an octopus birthday party prior to this one.

What did you base the birthday on? Hatched date? Received date?

Mr. Octopus thanks everyone for the well wishes.

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!
