Inky the Octopus breaks out of NZ aquarium

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

An octopus at New Zealand's National Aquarium has made a daring escape to the sea by fitting its rugby-ball-sized body through a small pipe.

Staff at the aquarium in Napier noticed the enclosure, which previously housed two octopuses was left with a single inhabitant earlier this year.

Inky, a male common New Zealand octopus, had escaped.

Staff found octopus tracks, which showed he began his journey by slipping through a small gap in the top of his enclosure before travelling across a wet floor.

He found a drain, about 150 millimetres in diameter, which led to the sea, and made a dash for freedom.

Next time we spot Inky let's hope he's still swimming free.

Can we stop the glass cages? Live and let live bro. Except giraffes or other hoofed animals...they seem to love 3 square meals and walls keeping the predators out :P

Perfect, I am in the mood for wildly caught freshly escaped-fugitive takoyaki.

I was wondering if Inky didn't stray too close to a restaurant featuring Calamari. Edited by paperdyer

Good for him. Octopuses should be in the sea - except when they're to be caught for food.
