no not at all but he stopped eating.....i'm almost positive i saw eggs with her last week but i think she ate them.....could she just be stressed? she was very active this morning and played with my hand.
She is at the end of her life. Autophagy (an octo eating itself) is very common in senescent octopuses. Egg laying, and constant hiding are other signs of the last couple weeks of an octopuses life, as is refusal of food.
It really depends on the octo. Some can take 1 week after showing the first signs of senescence and some will take up to 6-8 weeks, though that long is uncommon. Refusal to eat is usually one of the final steps. If your octo does not eat anymore I wouldn't expect her to last longer than a week, but if she does you might have a couple more weeks with her.
the last time she ate was about a week and a half ago and she stayed in her den and never came out until today. and today she was very active and playful. based on that description abut how long does she have to live?
