@Thales is in India ATM but hopefully he will see the tag and give you a suggestion as the California Academy of Sciences is the only place I can think of that has successfully brought the Coconut Octopus back to the US. For the Bob Tails you will probably need to contact someone in Hawaii but I don't know of a member currently residing there.
