Blue-Ringed Octopus


Blue-Ringed Octopus

    didn't know it was legal to even own those as pets lol
    This at scales n tails??
    How much do those cost?
    I didn't think blue-rings were legal due to their venomousness, but looks pretty cool though
    Awesome catch. They are not illegal, just make sure it never bites you... Ever. I'm sure gena did research so not to worry.
    They had one at my lfs store for 99 bucks. Beautiful, but only ringed when upset or scared. Not to belittle gena, but I think you need to be crazy to own an animal so venomous without a known cure for the bite/ antivenom. Now THAT is True passion for the oceans.
    I don't own him. I took this picture at my LFS which IS Scales 'n Tails, dweeeezy :) I was shocked to see him there and had to take a photo. Didn't think I'd ever see one of these guys in person. They are absolutely stunning but I think they strictly belong in the ocean.....way too dangerous of a specimen. It was definitely a thrill to see him in person though.
    Lol thats pretty much how I feel when I go to one of the nearby LFS and they have a rhinopias in either red or yellow. They onced had both variations and I went nuts on pictures.
    We had one of these in Austin at a good LFS. Fortunately they had substantial warning and conditions with him. I could totally see someone bringing one home from Petco ;)
    Here's a youtube video we made of this same blue-ringed octopus. My son is narrating in the video...fake accent and all :)
