With arms like that, I am almost certain that's an A. Aculeatus.....they are known for their exceptionally long arms in comparison to their body. If I recall [and I don't have any experience with them], Briarius tends to be a more reclusive species as well. :smile:

yeah if mine (CA 2-spot) is up at the top of the tank and i stick my finger in, he'll grab it with the webbed part of his tentacles and pull...then when he realizes he can't pull me in the tank, he lets go. if i keep touching him he'll keep grabbing hold and trying to pull.

the tug-of-war w/octos is a totally cool benefit of having one as a pet!
