As my dive buddies can attest I’ve always had a special interest in observing octopi in their natural habitat. I’ve been fortunate enough to have had numerous opportunities to watch and interact with them. On a few occasions we have actually played a shell game where the octopus offered one of the shells protecting her den to me. I would take it, hold it for a minute or so and then offer it back to her. We repeated this process over and over again until prudent gas management made it time to end the game. I came across this article on octopus and thought I would share it with you. Go here to read more on the most intelligent mollusks. It’s an article from Orion Magazine, enjoy.
Open since 1994, we are the Northshore’s oldest dive facility. Our mission is to train divers that are qualified not just certified.
