Now Back to Serious Octopus-Related News
I don't know about you guys, but I'm sooo relieved the election is over. (Who was my choice for president? There are ways to find out, if you're a particularly good detective. But my lips are sealed!) As for the big issues of the day, I'm honored that many of you have chosen Ananka's diary to debate them. I encourage all sides of every issue to speak out (nicely, of course). It's my belief that the only hope we have of making the world a better place is to sit down and really listen to those who disagree with us.
However . . . let's get back to the bizarre, shall we? I've come across lots of stories about genius octopi in the past. (They're crafty little creatures.) But I have to say, the story of Otto the octopus takes the cake. Seems Otto didn't like the light that workers at the Sea Star Aquarium in Coburg, Germany would let shine into his habitat during the night. So he found a way to deal with it. Find out how here.
