My research...

Enjoyed reading the article!

Have you ever been bitten by O. rubescens? They are supposed to bite more than other octopuses, but you seem to be touching one.

Absolutely, my plan is to publish my findings. There is some interesting and somewhat perplexing stuff going on with dietary lipids with O. rubescens.
Nancy, I have actually never been bit. I have handled them a reasonable amount, but have avoided their beak like the plague. They seem to be pretty aggressive at times trying to pull my hand/fingers towards their mouth. Especially when I have to fast them before testing. Anyhow, my major prof has been bit long before I was a student here, but had no ill effects.
