That certainly sounds interesting. I'd like to know when the key thing happens but I just hope it isn't made out of copper :smile:

Oooooooooo I've always been interested in these kinds of tests - is it possible to do similar one's with squid (or are they too smart to play along?).

Anyway there is a page on this at the aquariums home page with a fantastic picture:

Haliphron?

The PGO is the largest species of octopus...they say in the article. Perhaps they will print a retraction when e-mailed the H. atlanticus manuscript? :twisted:
