In a sense we do but it is sporadic and depends on the octi. It only happens if we have one that doesn't mind people. We give octopus care lessons every day. Touching happens only if the octi is in the mood. So we don't advertise or charge extra

No we don't wear gloves. People place their hands in the water and the octi explores it or not as the case may be. Actually I suppose it's more of a "people encounter" for our octopus!
