Or perhaps Red Octopus is Red. Either way, this fantastic octopus is not exactly the shy type. A little back story, Octopuses are nocturnal and aren’t typically in love with crowds, so most times when you see an Octopus Exhibit at an Aquarium it usually looks like an empty tank with a bunch of rocks and then maybe you see a tentacle or 2 peaking out from some dark corner, but that’s about it.
Ya know, it is what it is. I love Octopuses but I can appreciate they don’t work on my schedule. So imagine my surprise when I went to the Georgia Aquarium and at like 9:05 AM (yes that is 5 minutes after it opened and yes I did wait on line to be the second person in the Aquarium that morning) I walk by the Octopus tank and well, someone felt like performing.
Behold, Exhibitionist Octopus!
I said Good Day, Sir.
