Hi all,

We touched on this in other threads - I'd be very interested to know what toys you've offered your octopuses, and how they were used.

The one that keeps coming up (Colin mentioned it, I believe) is the small bottle with a cork stopper. It floats and makes a good toy.

Other toys are a pile of small shells (to sort through) and a bioball. I also remember reading last year about one small octo who liked running around the tank carrying the wooden chopsticks its owner used for offering it food!

More contributions? And games also, like Carol's splashing game.

Thanks,

Nancy
