A picture of my octo is attached. His name is Nacho. He is only 3.5 inches long. Can anyone tell me what specie I have here. Thanks!

you might want to post this in "ID requests" as well, since I think some of the ID experts pay more attention over there...

I assume if came from Florida. It looks like a large O. mercatoris. At this size, it won't last more than a couple of months before it lays eggs (if a female) or scenesces.
