Hello....

I used to have this phobia of octo's :oops: which did not help when I started work experience and then p/t work at the local aquarium I used to hate doing anything in the octo tank even water tests (octos like grabbing probs) well now after almost 2 years I am actually playing with one of our octo's letting it grab my finger. So now I love every creature in the sea YAY! :notworth:

Well thats me Cya :sleeping:

Hi and welcome to TONMO.com! :welcome:

That's a heartwarming story - overcoming your phobia and actually playing with an octopus! Did a particular octopus win you over, or did you gradually come to see that they weren't so bad?

Nice to have you with us!

Nancy

Wow, I congradulate you. Even thinking of what I originally thought of them makes me want to throw myself in an area with an architeuthis. What can I say? I was younger, naive...a total moron with NO taste whatsoever... :biggrin2:
