Excellent!!! How old is your daughtor? Mine is 6 1/2!! She loved Ink and Lil P! I'm so glad Jetta is doing sooo well!

My daughter is 11yrs old, she has always had more interaction with the octos than i have, dont know why, but they seem to trust her more. Maybe its because she is smaller and less intimidating and she sits quietly in front of the tank and talks to them. She is so gentle with them and Jetta has already touched her by exploring her hand at feeding time. I must admit i was very nervous with such a big octo actually having ahold of my daughter's hand, but Jetta was just as gentle and my daughter was thrilled :rainbow:
Hi Deb,
Interesting that you should mention sitting quietly in front of the tank. I did that a lot with Ollie, talked to her too. I think that helped a lot in gaining her trust.
