it's been done with a chess board with cuttles too! Very interesting. In fact I might start that tomorrow with one of my officinalis!

If you want some good ideas on Octo Enrichment I have a few and have a good contact in America who has written a massive piece on it!

I recently saw a video where the researcher was trying to teach the cuttlefish to make crosses (X's) to get food rewards. They were able to do that quite well!

I've read some things on octo enrichment, but if you have access to more, please let us know. The GPO toys that Carol photographed recently were interesting, too.

I'll have a word with him and see if he could make it available online or something! Very interesting reading!

You can have fun with making fish ice lollies and things like that, ise the tail of the fish as a handle and they love it!

Also makes for good PR if you work in a public aquarium!
