I am looking to interview octopus enthusiasts for a radio segment in NYC. Do you have a pet octopus? Know anyone who has a pet octopus in or around NYC? I would be very interested in speaking with you.

Hello,

Welcome to TONMO. I think there are at least a few ceph keepers in the NYC area, and certainly plenty of enthusiasts (like me). Off to search the banks. In the meantime, perhaps someone will pipe up.

Cheers,

Clem

Much the same could be said of Western Connecticut. Carol, this looks like a job for you.

TONMO member Manny is, I believe, a New Yorker, and his octo experienced a traumatic ride through his tank's sump. This was back in February of 2003. Click here to view that thread. Manny, are you still with us?
