 And to think the gloomy occys (Octopus Tetricus) dont live much longer than 3 years , they must do some growing considering there tiny birth weights.

 Got a 1.5kg the other day who had sealed himself in pot with about 10 empty razorfish shells like a shield.

 They taste awesome pickled but you do tend to warm to them the more you interact with them.
