Welcome back! Let's all get reaquainted :biggrin2:
Yeah i was missed :smile: !!!! well lets see, i never did loose interest in Octos, but i got side tracked looking for Octos in Caves:biggrin2:

I've become a full cave diver since i was here last, know of any species that live in caves? I have seen some really rare speices, such as a Blind Salamander in a cave in N.FL. Apparently they only exist in 3 caves systems in the world.!

:welcome: back Octopush

Aren't salamanders only found in freshwater like all other amphibians or are there some saltwater species? You may not find octos in caves with salamenders!

Yes, you are right, i was diving in the Fresh water caves in North Florida. So no Octos in caves? What a shame.

Heres a few pics

Those are great pics!

Greatest. Sign. Ever.

I know, those signs are at the front of every cave, you know to prevent the untrained idiots. The most amazing part of the cave training is when they make you switch off all your lights and its blacker then black and you have to feel your way out. Oh boy does that test your mental ability, i thought i was going to get stuck at one point, but couldn't see anything! Interesting feeling

Now you need to try the blue holes out in the bahamas. I've heard many stories about giant octo's and stingrays living in the blue holes.

Hi, Octopush! Glad you came back! Are you thinking of getting a ceph or do you still have one? Hey, that looks like Ginnie Springs! And I think that sign's at the bottom of Devil's Ear? I'm one of the idiots who can't go past with only an AOW cert. :smile: Still, the ballroom is good enough for a first trip! Maybe you need a dive buddy one day?
Euprymna, I think it's usually 72 degrees.
