Maybe this have already been talked about, maybe it hasn't but i figured i would ask anyway. My octopus is very active and actually only comes out during the day . He spends the whole day trying to get my attention because when i come around it usually means one of two things...food or hand contact which it seems to love more than anything. We play tug-o-war all the time and he even tried to get me with jets of water. Seeing DHyslop's post on that bite made me think twice about hand contact but its hard to resist. Now for my question, lately when he lets go of my hand a hand full of particles come off and float in the water. It looks almost as if its shedding the tips of its suckers because they are round and about the size of his suckers. Has anyone had this happen and if so should i be worried?
